Moillard, historically based in Nuits-Saint-Georges, in the Cote de Nuits, offers Domaine wines (Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune) and a traditional signature of Burgundy wines. The old documents of Nuits-Saint-Georges attest that the Moillard family already owned vineyards before the French Revolution. But the Winery saw a real boom in 1850, when Symphorien Moillard bought his first wines to satisfy an order too important for his own Domain, thus initiating his activity of wine trading. Since then, Moillard has carried out the meticulous job of wine making and aging to bring all their wines to their full potential. Nowadays, Moillard is part of the top five Winery in Burgundy. A vineyard of 49 acres in the Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune area, among them 50% of Premier Cru level.

Representing some of the darkest, deepest and sturdiest Pinot Noir of Burgundy, Pommard is one of the two villages in Cote de Beaune-along with Volnay-that is recognized for its impressive Pinot Noir. While it can't boast any Grands Crus vineyards, its extraordinary Premiers Crus vineyards are aplenty.

The best Pommards will be concentrated in flavors such as black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate, have dazzling aromas of violets, menthol or wild herbs and a firm and powerful finish. They typically demand time in the bottle to reach their peak.
