The origins of the Domaine go back to 1677 when Edme Corty laid the foundations of a small Domaine in Pouilly. André Moreux bought his first vines in 1702, but on the other side of the Loire, in Sancerre. It is incredible to think that their love of wine and the land would straddle 300 years of history and descend done through 12 generations!
These origins explain why, today, the presence in the appellation of Pouilly-Fumé, and more exactly les loges, and in Sancerre at Chavignol. These two regal appellations of Sauvignon Blanc were united in 1955 by the marriage of Jeannine Corty and Raymond Moreaux, direct descendants of Edme and André. As a wedding present their parents gave them a 4.5 hectares parcel of vineyards on a hillside – the ‘Loge Aux Moines’.
Today the story continues with Arnaud and Julien Moreux – who have worked respectively at the family Domaine since 2009 and 2011. In each bottle from the vineyards of Patrice Moreux you will above all be tasting the passion, the knowledge and a constant search for the truth, a philosophy where nature is the queen, leaving no place for any chemical interference or external yeasts. All ferments are natural and our wines are made with the greatest of respect for their terroir.
