About Domaine de la Fond Moiroux
Domaine de la Fond Moiroux (pronounced “mwah-roo”), a fine wine property in Cogny, Beaujolais established since 1789. The estate is located in the village of Cogny in South Beaujolais. This zone is known as the “land of the golden stones” due to the color of the omni-present sandstone also used for the construction of the cellar itself.
Hand harvested finest Gamay Noir grapes from vines over forty years of age produced in several different appellations including Beaujolais Villages, Brouilly and Moulin a Vent.
From bud-break to harvest, the grapes are strongly influenced by the often changing weather. All grapes in the vine- yards are carefully tender by hand and this enables reaching full maturity and finest quality throughout the different parcels. As part of the organic viticulture practices, aiming to limit the amount of chemicals needed, the space in-between the rows of vines is covered by cover crops to ensure appropriate water and nutrient competition.
The clear goal is to produce well-structured and long lived wines expressing the identity terroir they come from. Harvesting mainly intact grapes enables us to obtain the best possible extraction of flavour compounds. This again results in wines of discrete opulence, fruit, elegance and silky soft tannins.
