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 a Vent wines have long been renowned among France’s finest wines. Dominique seeks to create characterful terroir wines from his sloping vineyards. These are wines that showed us what we’d long been looking for from Beaujolais but had almost given up hope of finding.
Dominique also makes wines from six other Beaujolais crus, alongside his excellent Beaujolais-Villages, sparkling and still Chardonnay and fresh, crunchy Gamay rosé. “Dominique Piron has been one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais,” declared Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France.
