Founded in 1865, Mommessin began exporting exquisite wines from Burgundy in 1890. Today, the négociant based in Quincé-en-Beaujolais makes an eclectic array of wines from multiple appellations in Beaujolais, Burgundy and the Rhône. The business was purchased in the 1990s and moved from Burgundy to Beaujolais. It is noted for being a long-standing owner of the Clos de Tart grand cru vineyard in Morey-Saint-Denis since 1932, which the Mommessin family eventually sold to French billionaire François Pinault for nearly $300 million. Mommessin currently makes multiple Beaujolais winesas well as Burgundy wines including La Clé Saint Pierre Bourgogne Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Macon-Villages and a Cote de Beaune-Villages. Rhône wines include Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and Côtes-du-Rhône, all produced under different labels.
