Modern vision of wine
An authentic and natural product, a pleasurable and cultural product, an original product, a branded product, or product of different grape varieties, a product which must meet the expectations of a global and complex market.
The laboratory supplies advisory and wine-making analysis services. The oenologists recommend their advice, various wine-making products and their services freely, by offering just what is best for the wine. We have made this strong and voluntary choice to have independence.
Oenologists from the Moreau Œnologie Laboratory know a lot about the structures of production and their economic constraints, they are always concerned about matching customers’ means to implementing their services.
Wine for markets
A quality wine is a wine that matches the expectations expressed or implied by wine consumers. True connoisseurs of markets and consumer tastes, advising enologists from the Moreau Œnologie laboratory work creatively to constantly adapt to the range of requested products, while holding on to the very heart and soul of the producer and their vineyard.
Defining your objectives
Beforehand, a diagnosis is carried out to find out about your product objectives, your market objectives, as well as the material means and the time you have to achieve your aim. So, personalised advice about the wine-producing processes to implement can be given to you.

Support and wine farming
Wine farming serves to develop your potential and to express as best as possible, your terroir type. Advising oenologists from the Moreau Œnologie laboratory bring you all their know-how about the best-suited choices and techniques for wine farming, selecting barrels, heating, micro-oxygenation and so on. With you, they attentively monitor developments. The oenologists give particular care to keeping wine correctly and, along with you, take care of regular analytical inspections.
Winemaking and packaging
Knowing how to make wine, preparing them to be bottled, is a last important step in ensuring, on the one hand, the products are presented perfectly to the consumer, and on the other hand, ensuring the stability of the wine in the bottles. The Moreau Œnologie laboratory gives you professional services, bringing together analytical assessments and studies by your advising enologist for stabilisation processes (microbiological stabilisation, sealing, filtration and so on), then for packaging.
Our goal is not to make wines for competitions, but to create wines with style and elegance, which retain their own character while progressing. Then these wines will get more attention and naturally come close to reaching high scores, awarded by influential wine critics or reference guides. Retaining the origins of wine is crucial for ensuring good quality and thus high sales on target markets.
People refer to Moreau Oenologie for regular on-site availability out in the vineyards, as well as for extremely close relationships established between clients and consultants. Our interest in specific terroirs, sharing of knowledge, all-round availability and complicity with our partners make that method a highly efficient working procedure.
