Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix, specialized in the fine wines of Bordeaux since 1937, today owns and distributes a number of notable Châteaux of the region. For 80 years, we have been committed to sourcing the finest fruit grown by local farmers to produce wines that are balanced, elegant and reflect the distinctive terroirs of this renowned region.
The unique quality of Pomerol lies in its geology: clay and gravel on the central plateau; and variations of gravel, sand and clay as the elevation declines. These soils are ideally suited to the Merlot grape, which offers youthful charm and approachability combined with singular longevity when grown in this terroir. This geological complexity yields rich, powerful, seductive wines that display remarkable balance and elegance.
JEAN-PIERRE MOUEIX POMEROL, a blend of second wines from the Jean-Pierre Moueix family vineyards and other renowned Châteaux of the appellation, is crafted with care to express the nuances of fruit and terroir from this storied appellation. After vinification, the wine is blended and aged in the historic Quai du Priourat cellars in Libourne, benefitting from all the expertise of the Jean-Pierre Moueix technical teams.
