The estate of Domaine Roger & Christophe Moreux represents the best in artisanal wine making.  Established in Chavignol in 1895, the work of the vineyards has been handed down from father to son for generations. Today the domaine is under the attentive care of Christophe Moreux as his father, Roger, has entered retirement. Located just a few short minutes from the town of Sancerre, Chavignol is considered one of the great sites of the appellation, and in possession of some of Sancerre’s  greatest terroirs. Moreux owns vines in the two top vineyards of Chavignol: Les Monts Damnés and Les Bouffants. Both vineyards produce some of Sancerre’s top wines, Moreux’s perennially among them. The estate also produces a small amount of red and rosé wine, from Pinot Noir.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale golden color with tints of green. Delicate, fresh nose with hints of citrus, melon, fig and floral notes. Round on the palate, full and lively. The finish is crisp and invigorating, with notes of citrus, very refreshing.
Vineyard Notes
Moreux’s “Les Bouffants” comes from a parcel of limestone soil covered with rocks, or "caillottes." This extremely steep, stony vineyard yields an aromatic wine of great minerality. It is located beside Les Monts Damnés, the “Grand Cru” site of Chavignol.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with oysters, shrimp, white fish in a delicate beurre blanc sauce.
