The region of Burgundy spans the wine districts of Chablis around Auxere, south passing Dijon and Beaune in the Côte d`Or, to Mâcon and the granite hills of Beaujolais. This medieval Dukedom is an inland region, benefiting from warm continental summers and cold winters. The area is a patchwork of red iron-rich soils mixed with limestone and granite. Chardonnay is the dominant white variety, Pinot Noir and Gamay are the main red varieties.
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. 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.
From the warm chalk and marl vineyards in the Chalonnais, southern Burgundy, this estate wine exhibits the rich flavours of 70 year old vines aged on the lees. The floral nose leads to a complex creamy palate, with vanilla, biscuit and butterscotch flavours lingering on the finish.
A floral, complex white Burgundy from 70 year old Chardonnay vines offering a creamy palate with vanilla, biscuit and butterscotch flavours lingering on the finish.
A good match for pates, wild mushroom risotto or pasta and creamy chicken, pork or veal dishes.
