A hotspot for the history of Burgundy, Moulin aux Moines is located in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, in the village of Auxey-Duresses. This mythical “clos” has been farmed and harvested since its plantation by the monks of the Abbey of Cluny, and then by those of the Abbey of Citeaux since 962, continuing for 6 centuries until present day. This unique area was chosen by the monks because of the environment’s qualities/features: a noble abode in the intersection of two valleys at the heart of the Cote de Beaune wine region, walled in by the Clos and penetrated by the Clous River which nourished the mill.

produced from 2 vineyards grown organically: Les Fas in Pommard (older vines planted at an altitude of 330m) and Clos de la Perrière in Corpeau (located south of Puligny-Montrachet, first planting in the late 1960’s.  The grapes have a higher level of acidity here).
