Winemaking has been a tradition in the Moreux Family for several generations. Patrice Moreux and his both sons Arnaud and Julien are from the winemaker’s village “Les loges”. They cultivate 35 hectares of wines in Pouilly-sur-Loire. Patrice and his sons are the sole owners of the parcel known as “La loge aux moines”, the first one in the vineyard of Pouilly-sur-Loire history. This terroir of the region is ideal for grape growing. It has been cultivated since the eleventh century; originally by Benedictins monks. It was during this time that the monks provided shelter for pilgrims as Pouilly-sur-Loire was on the road of the ancient pilgrimage to Saint Jacques de Compostelle (the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in north-western Spain, where the tradition has it that the remains of the apostle Saint James are buried).
Patrice Moreux also cultivates 5 hectares of Sancerre (sauvignon blanc) on the claylimestone soils of Chavignol and Crézancy at the vineyard known as “Les Monts damnés”. Well known in the world of the wine, this terroir provide us minerality, aromatic notes and well balanced wines.
