Moron-Garcia is the creation of two friends, Matthieu Moron & Pierre-Olivier Garcia. Like many young domaines the two farm parcels in less prestigious terroirs due to the prohibitively high prices of land in famous terroirs. They work, however, every plot as if it was a top Grand Cru, and certainly much better than many Grand Crus are currently farmed.
The vineyards are farmed organically and ploughed by horse. Old vines give naturally low yields which give the wines concentration. The attention to detail lavished on these vineyards is more likely to be seen on top 1er and Grand Cru vineyards, but it pays off with wines that deliver much more than their humble appellations might suggest.
This obsessive attention to detail carries over into the winery where they practice a unique technique that they have named ‘baie par baie,’ or ‘berry by berry.’ Single berries are cut from the stems then mixed with whole bunches and, sometimes, also with traditionally destemmed grapes. The ratio of each component changes according to vintage and cuvée.
The first vintage was 2016 and the domaine already has a cult following. The future for Moron-Garcia is very bright.
