Francois Morissette has shown to be a very gifted vigneron. Classically trained he has been working in the Grand Cru terroirs of Frédéric Mugnier of Chambolle Musigny, Christian Gouges of Domaine Henri Gouges, Jean-Marc of Domaine Roulot and later studied oenology at L’Université de Dijon.
Now Francois is producing wine in the Niagara wine-region of Canada, under the Domain Pearl-Morissette.
Though classically trained Francis’ approach to winemaking is anything but classic.
He now has parcels of Chardonnay, Riesling, Gamay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc.
The levels of intervention is kept to a minimum and the filosofi is to guide the wine rather than fixing it.
The result is honest, unfiltered and low in sulphur.
