Moillard, Pommard Premier Cru "La Platiere" - exquisite wine from the Pinot Noir grape grown in the Pommar commune, in the "La Platier" vineyard of the Premier Crewe class. Appearance Pommar is known for his red wines, most of which are made from Pinot Noir. It is located south of the city of Bon, along the famous "Grand Cru road". Although Pommar does not have Gran Crew vineyards, it has several prestigious Premier Crew terroirs, which give excellent harvests for making red wines.
Moyar, Pommar Premier Crewe "La Platier" - a powerful and expressive wine with pleasant tannin and clear fruity shades. Pinot Noir for wine making is collected from 35-year-old vines, after which it is sorted manually. Maturing of wine for one and a half years passes in oak barrels, with 40% of barrels - new, and 60% - old. The wine has an excellent storage capacity, for 8 years.
The wine company Moillard dates back to 1850, from the Belgian notary Simforen Moyyar, who in 1848 married Margaret Griva, owner of the vine plantations. In 1873, their daughter married Maurice Tom, who owned extensive vineyards in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Thanks to this, the house of Moillard significantly expanded its activities, erecting new cellars for a thousand barrels, designed by the Dijon architect Charles Suyi. Soon Moyar became one of the most influential wine houses in Burgundy.
The First World War dealt a heavy blow to the enterprise. All its production facilities and reserves were destroyed. Built at the end of the fighting, Moyar's house in the 30s of the 20th century successfully survived a major financial crisis, helping to survive other Burgundy winemakers. For this he was called "Banquier de la Bourgogne". In the 1940s, Moyar, resisting the coming hard times, is building another basement - this time by 1,5 thousand barrels. The postwar quiet time allowed the fifth generation of Simporen Moyyar's descendants to expand production and take a firm position in the open markets of Europe.
In 2000, the house of Moillard celebrated its 150th anniversary. On this occasion, its large cellars were decorated with a 120-meter mosaic fresco. It represents the local landscapes in four seasons, they are traversed through the image of the historical train PLM - the exact copy of what was brought for the first time by the notary Moyar in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
