Norbert and Marie-Genevieve Molozay have spent decades living with the most amazing first names two humans can have, but it was in 1999 that they first discovered and began restoring the vineyards of Chateau de Vaux.

Carefully selected fruit from older vines is gently pressed before natural fermentation/ageing in large format oak. Malolactic fermentation occurs the following spring and battonage is carried out occasionally for 12 months before bottling.

Super aromatic and flavoursome wine with notes of ripe peach and apricot alongside notes of fennel and hazelnuts. Medium bodied with silky texture balanced by crisp acidity.

THE REGION

The Moselle AOC is located in North-eastern France near the border of Luxembourg on the Mosel River (known locally as Moselle). At a latitude of 49°N, this is one of France’s northernmost wine producing areas and one of the smallest at only 70ha. The climate is cool, and soils are dominated by limestone with some areas of marl.

With such small quantities being produced the wines are very rarely seen on the export market. Although the appellation is small, it is steadily growing. The Château de Vaux has been one of the major players in this revival, restoring old plots, clearing hillsides that have been abandoned for 40 years and replanting noble grape varieties on the best sites.
