France – Domaine Piron
Starting with the Romans, wine growing has developed since the 3rd century. Dominique Piron’s oldest known ancestor was born in Morgon in 1590. Since then, there have been 14 generations of wine growers in the family. Morgon and Moulin à Vent wines have long been renowned among France’s finest wines.
Today, new pages of history are being written, as fine crus and terroirs once again come to the forefront. Beaujolais Nouveau tasting will remain a joyous and festive occasion, an absolute must on the third Thursday in November every year; but traditional crus will once again set off to win over the world with more structured wines, full of fruity and mineral flavors. These crus are more modern and easier to understand. They go well with most of the world’s cuisines. Wines for friendship, wines that are pure pleasure.
In a vineyard with difficult terrain− 30% steep slopes and a virtual patchwork of parcels, Dominique Piron is engaged in sustainable winegrowing. On winegrowing land filled with old broken-down granite and schist, the watchwords are natural balance and biodiversity. For vinification, our goal is to create terroir wines, wines of character, that remain fruity, subtle and elegant.
