Moillard is a historic Burgundian négociant house located in the Côte d’Or. The domaine has land in the Côte de Nuits and in the Côte de Beaune, with half of production at the Premier Cru level. Moillard produces a range of wines in Burgundy from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Aligoté.
The domaine is based in Nuits-Saint-Georges, although its 20 hectares (49 acres) of vineyard land spread from Vougeot in the north to Volnay in the south. Moillard’s top sites include Pommard Premier Cru Les Rugiens, Volnay Premier Cru Clos des Chênes, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Argillats, and a plot in the Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru vineyard. Moillard also has 73ha (180 acres) of organically farmed land in the Languedoc.
Grapes are handpicked and sorted, then spend some days macerating post-fermentation. Wines are gravity-fed to barrel, then matured 14 to 20 months in new and used French oak.
Moillard was established by Symphorien Moillard in 1850 and remained in the family until 2008 when it was sold to Vincent Sauvestre, who also owns négociant Jean-Baptiste Béjot in Meursault
Taste: Deliciously fresh and creamy, this wine rolls around the mouth with its smooth, ripe texture. There are flavors of almonds, some toast from wood, and just enough acidity. The aftertaste is soft.
Colour: Pale yellow in colour.
Nose: When young this wine has roasted and lemony notes, which will merge over time to gain complexity and give way to more subtle notes of white flowers like jasmine and hawthorn.
Palate: The palate is incredibly rich and powerful, balanced and distinguished.
