Fertile Terroirs & Fresh Aromas Dominate Domaine Mosnier
In the far north of Burgundy, in the middle of lush countryside, there is an ancient estate named Domaine Mosnier. The winery is well-known for its wide range of Chablis wines, expressing the essence of purity and minerality of the terroirs from which they are produced. With four appellations and each of which delivers different Burgundy Wines, the estate has become a must-visit place in France.
An Exciting Story of a Professor-Turned-Winemaker
Sylvain, a professor of mechanics, settled in Chablisien in 1978 at the age of 34. His ancestors were wine merchants and already into wine production in Poilly-Sur-Serein. In 1995, his wife quitted her job as a teacher and joined Sylvain in the winery. Monique started handling marketing and computerization. Later in 2004, the couple’s daughter, Stéphanie, also left her job in Lyon and, after three years, began to support her family. Today, the family has been independent winemakers for over 30 years and organized various wine exhibitions. After Sylvain’s retirement in 2013, Stéphanie acquired the winery. Her husband, Christophe, now supports her in the winemaking journey.
Vineyards with High Environmental Value Certification (HVE)
Domaine Mosnier owns around 19 hectares of vineyards, where Stéphanie focuses on the cultivation of only one type of grape variety, and that is Chardonnay. With this, the estate produces high-end white wines and store them in Amphora for ageing and refining. In 2020, the territory on which the estate grows its vines has become HVE certified with three approved appellations.
