About Moillard

Moillard was bought from the company Bejot in 2016.

It is now under Francois Martenot a subsidiary of The

Family Helfrich owned Group; Les Grands Chais de

France established in 1979.

Following the acquisition of Moillard by GCF in 2016,

investment and new methods will be implemented

with a true desire to respect the Terroir and quality

of the wine.  In Burgundy, it isn’t enough to be

‘well-born’, you must be ‘well-bred’ too.

Historically, Moillard is based in Nuits-Saint-Georges,

in Côte de Nuits, bringing you Estate wines (Côte de

Nuits and Côte de Beaune,) a signature to Burgundian

tradition.

The oldest written records of Nuits-Saint-Georges show

that the Moillard family already owned vineyards there

before the French Revolution. But the firm really took

off in 1850 when Symphorien Moillard purchased his first

wines to fill an order that was too big for his estate, thus

starting his wine brokerage activity.

Since then Moillard has been taking all the time needed

to vinify and mature its wines so that they reach their

full potential.

Creating an alliance between respect for generations

of skills and know-how at Domaine Moillard and the

use of modern equipment, a new winery was created

in 2009 in Nuits-Saint-Georges where grapes picked

on the greatest terroirs of Côte de Nuits and Côte de

Beaune could be brought and vinified. Equipped with

small, open, vats, this winery has been set out to keep

the grapes whole before vinification. After strict sorting,

the best berries are taken to the vats in small containers

to avoid any unnecessary pumping. Respecting Côte de

Nuits tradition, vatting is long. The wines are treated to

several days of post-fermentation maceration at 30°C.

Moillard’s red wines are rich! They are rich in colour and

concentrated thanks to skilled extraction. This brings

lovely structure and power to the wines, allowing great

cellaring potential.

In its white wines, Moillard aims for complexity in the

aromas and flavours combined with finesse. They are

fresh and balanced with great length.

Moillard has always crafted wines of rare finesse and

elegance, faithful to Burgundian tradition. They centre

on Moillard’s terroirs and spotlighting the ‘climats’ that

are representative of Burgundy.

Our Vineyards

Historically, our estate vineyards are in Côte de Beaune
 
and Côte de Nuits. They are tended by Jacques BRIDAY,
 
a proponent of integrated vinegrowing, meaning that the
 
way each plot is tended is adapted to its real time
 
requirements. Our vinegrowing methods respect the
 
environment. The harvest date is set for when the grapes
 
reach peak ripeness. Yields are controlled, especially for
 
Pinot Noir, which is quite a fragile grape variety… « A
 
well cared for vineyard gives good grapes, the sine
 
qua none condition to create great wines » Jacques
 
Briday Vineyard Manager Moillard’s style is for rich wines!

on our terroirs and spotlighting the ‘climats’ that are oh
 
so representative of Burgundy

 

Vinification & Maturing

Vinification is by Baptiste Corrot, holder of a Master’s
 
degree in Viticulture-Oenology from the University of
 
Bordeaux. Creating an alliance between respect for
 
generations of skills and know-how at Domaine Moillard
 
and the use of modern equipment, a new winery was
 
created in 2009 in Nuits-Saint-Georges where grapes
 
picked on the greatest terroirs of Côte de Nuits could
 
be brought and vinified.Equipped with small, open, vats,
 
this winery has been set out to keep the grapes whole
 
before vinification. After strict sorting, the best berries
 
are taken to the vats in small containers to avoid any
 
unnecessary pumping. Respecting Côte de Nuits tradition,
 
vatting is long. The wines are treated to several days
 
of post-fermentation maceration at 30°C.The aim is to
 
get wines that are both elegant and powerful, that can
 
age and be enjoyed throughout aging. The wines are
 
transferred to barrels by gravity to the old vaulted
 
cellar on site with over 1000 barrels in its ranks. They
 
are cared for by our oenologists throughout their 14 to
 
20-month maturing. This is how the wines attain their
 
complexity and express the very best of the terroir they
 
hail from. « The aim is to get wines that are both elegant
 
and powerful, that can age and be enjoyed throughout
 
aging. » Baptiste Corrot, Œnologist)

 

Why We're Cool

Creating a balance between respect for generations of

skills and know-how at Domaine Moillard and the use of

modern equipment, a new winery was created in 2009

in Nuits-Saint-Georges where grapes picked on the

greatest terroirs of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune

could be brought and vinified.

OUR RED WINES

Equipped with small, open, vats, this winery has been

set out to keep the grapes whole before vinification.

After strict sorting, the best berries are taken to the

vats in small containers to avoid any unnecessary

pumping. Respecting Côte de Nuits tradition, vatting

is long. The wines are treated to several days of post-

fermentation maceration at 30°C.

OUR WHITE WINES

As soon as they arrive at the winery, the grapes are

placed in our presses and immediately gently pressed,

the juice is then allowed to settle.  Depending on the

appellation, the must ferments in thermo-regulated

stainless-steel vats (Chablis, Mâcon) or in oak barrels.

Regular stirring up (bâtonnage) contributes complexity

of aromas and flavours and length on the palate.
