Recently awarded the title of oenologist, Vivien Lamoureux welcomes us to this large family property in the heart of Les Riceys. Once in the wine cellar, you cannot fail to be impressed by the traditional Coquard wine press, the majestic feature of the room. Life-size wall frescos portray daily scenes in the life of a winegrower, whilst the painting of a wine cellar on the door gives the illusion of entering the cavern of Maison Lamoureux. Incidentally, the real wine cellar under your feet houses a genuine treasure: each bottle is closely guarded by the family for several years in cellar closed by a magnificent wrought iron gate. The prestigious Cuvée Réserve, awarded gold at the Paris Concours General Agricole in 2011, can be found there. In order to further add to his knowledge, Vivien is planning several travels to discover different winemaking approaches and techniques.
