Moron-Garcia

Burgundy, burgundy France

Childhood friends Mathieu Moron and Pierre Olivier Garcia began their new venture in 2016 when Mathieu’s father gave him a small parcel of vines in Nuits-Saint-Georges. They bought a house in the centre of Nuits and converted it into a winery.

Mathieu and Pierre Olivier work the vines in order to restore biodiversity in the vineyards, something they feel has been lost due to the focus on single-crop farming across the region. Their ‘eco-attitude’ means they experiment with cereals, ploughing, planting trees and even use chickens to graze the land, in an attempt to bring back bees and butterflies to their 0.4 hectares of vineyard. In addition, they source grapes from a network of grower friends with whom they work closely, in order to have as much control over the quality as possible.

Moron-Garcia are advocates of low-intervention winemaking. They use no new oak, believing its character inhibits the wine’s ability to express its origin. They are pioneering ‘baie-par-baie’, a painstaking process which involves hand-cutting each individual grape from the bunch, with the stalk intact. This technique takes 30 people an entire day to complete a single barrel, yet they think it’s worth it as it enhances the aromas and complexity in the finished wine.

We are starting with the 2017s, only Moron-Garcia’s second vintage. The Aligoté ‘Les Champs Tions’ is a serious style of Aligoté sourced from grapes grown in Fixin and vinified solely in oak. Organically farmed, the Nuit-Saint-Georges ‘Les Charmois’ is made with 10% whole-bunch and 40% baie-par-baie. It has delicate red fruit flavours with a refined tension on the palate and a lifted finish. The Brouilly ‘La Folie’ is sourced from organic growers in Beaujolais. The grapes were crushed by foot with 10% whole bunch, ensuring lifted perfumes are retained in the finished wine. The Marsannay ‘Clos du Roy’ has aromas of crunchy red fruits and violets. The palate is expressive with bright perfumed fruit and soft tannins. The star of the show is undoubtedly the Corton Grand Cru ‘Cuvée Baie par Baie'. An elegant masterpiece, it is made with 30% ‘baie-par-baie’ and 50% whole bunch to ensure the wine has a delicate aromatic profile. The grapes come from 50-year-old vines and the resulting wine has a vibrant energy, a beautifully structured palate and an incredibly long finish.

We feel Moron-Garcia is one of the most exciting producers to come out of Burgundy in recent years, so are delighted to introduce them to this market.
