About the Winery:
The Moillard family has been cultivating vines in Nuits-Saint-Georges since the French Revolution. The arrival of the railway in Nuits-Saint-Georges opened up new commercial opportunities and the Maison Moillard began its activity as wine merchants in 1850. In 1870, Symphorien Moillard’s son died while serving with the French Army in Algeria. His sister, Jeanne Moillard, took over the family trade and continued the tradition of the Maison Moillard. In 1873, she married Maurice Thomas, himself an owner of Burgundy vineyards. From generation to generation, the Thomas family extended the properties, buying up precious plots and developing the trade. In 2008, Vincent Sauvestre succeeded the Thomas family in running the Maison Moillard and perpetuating its prestigious reputation as one of the finest winemakers in Burgundy.
Ratings & Reviews
There is a warm, southern feel to this ripe wine. Flavors head right to yellow fruits, hints of mango and general richness. An edge of acidity balances all this warmth. Drink the wine from late 2021. Roger Voss
