The family firm of Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix own many of the finest châteaux on Pomerol’s central plateau as well as Premier Grand Cru Classé Château Bélair-Monange in Saint-Émilion. In addition, they manage the vineyards of several other Right Bank châteaux, helping them to produce wines of outstanding harmony, beauty and elegance. Christian Moueix has been the guiding light of the family’s progress since his first vintage in 1971. His son Edouard is now taking over, aided by a brilliant team in vineyard and cellar. Our history with the Moueix family goes back to 1970, when Nick Clark and Anthony Hanson MW first started our business with them. We have been shipping from them uninterruptedly since then.
Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix belongs to classical school of wine making. Their aim is to produce wines which are fully ripe, yet lively, with all elements subtly integrated and with great length of flavour. These wines have the ability to gain smoothness, complexity and silkiness as they mature.
