Le Clos du Moulin aux Moines is located in Auxey-Duresses, on the Côte de Beaune in Burgundy. With a long Burgundy history and monastery heritage, this mythical enclosure was created in 962 CE by the Abbey of Cluny. The Clos du Moulin Aux Moines is the historic parcel that gave the estate its name. Protected by a long stone wall, reflected by the name Clos, its lower border is formed by the Cloux stream. The soils on the higher ground are rich in red clay and limestone with rock outcrops, while on the lower ground, the Clos soil is deeper than 6 meters. The estate has belonged to the Andrieu family since 2008 and is managed by Willy Roulendes. The 15 hectares are managed as certified organic farm land and are spread across the Auxey-Duresses, Monthélie, Pernand-Vergelesses, Pommard, Saint-Romain and Bourgogne AOC appellations.
Harvesting is by hand and is collected in perforated crates of a maximum of 18 kg. During this harvest, an initial selection is carried out in the vineyard, two further selections are done on a sorting table. Le Clos du Moulin aux Moines respects the Burgundian tradition for its winemaking, where the red wines are mainly vinified in concrete vats and the whites in barrels and casks. Fermentation begins according to its natural rhythm for a period ranging from 8 to 12 days. The aging period varies from 12 to 18 months depending on the appellation and vintage. To avoid negatively marking its wines, the winery prefers barrels of no more than 15% new French oak.
Bourgogne Blanc Clos de la Perrière is made from Chardonnay cultivated on a parcel located south of Puligny-Montrachet. The wine ages for 12 months in demi-muids, or 600-liter oak barrels, with 5 to 15% being new.
