Domaine des Moirots is a family property situated in the village of Bissey-sur-Cruchaud that has been producing wine on about 30 acres of south facing vineyards in the Cote Chalonnaise, the region just to the south of the Cote de Beaune, since 1978. Christophe Denizot handles the operation and produces Chardonnay and Pinot Noir based wines from his carefully tended vineyards using traditional Burgundian methods allied to modern winemaking techniques to produce fine wines from the healthiest vines. The granite and limestone soils and climate here lends itself to the production of wines of firm acidity and supple minerality.
This Montagny 1er Cru from the Domaine des Moirots, originates from one of the prestige vineyards of Montagny amid the ruins of a medieval tower of Buxy castle. A brilliant golden yellow in colour, this has a very attractive bouquet of tropical fruit flavours. It is an excellent balance between ripeness and freshness with a flinty minerality. Well structured with a creamy mouthfeel and exotic fruits which linger on the finish.
