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.

The domaine increased in size bit by bit over the years and now spans 15 hectares

this bottling is sourced from a  few very tiny plots next to Volnay (only totaling 1 hectare!):

 The Pommard Village is a blend of fruit from very compatible plots. The smallest plot is on “Croix Planet” vineyard, which produces fat and full wines. The plots of “Vaumuriens” and “Vignots” are old vines that give delicacy and structure to the final blend. The plot “La Vache”, which is a “climat” located on the hill-centre of the terroir, assures a rather mineral wine.
