Description

'A pungent nose combines notes of petrol, resin, matchstick and various white orchard fruit scents. The very round, suave and highly seductive flavors possess good muscle and power before culminating in a solidly persistent and layered finish' - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, June 2017.

This Chassagne-Montrachet is made from Chardonnay fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels, 10% to 30% of which is new. The wine is then aged for 14 to 15 months in French oak barrels, also with a proportion of 10% to 30% new oak.

It's impossible to discuss Chassagne-Montrachet without mentioning the name Bernard Moreau. Year to year, this celebrated producer vinifies and bottles some of the purest, most thought-provoking wines of the appellation. Employing a style of wine making that might best be described as hands-off, Bernard produces Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that are sensual, opulent and utterly delicious. The winery's roots go back to 1809 when Auguste Moreau built a cellar across from the Champs Gain vineyard and farmed his few hectares of Chardonnay and Pinot along the golden slope. The 1930s saw an expansion of the family's vineyards under the guidance of Marcel Moreau. Roughly 80% of the domaine's current vineyard holdings were acquired by Marcel. At age 14, Bernard Moreau took over the vineyards and cellar in the early 1960s. In 1977 the reputation of this great estate was fully established under the leadership of Bernard and Francoise Moreau and the winery was named Domaine Bernard Moreau. In addition to the changes in equipment, farming and wine making, they also purchased additional land bringing the vineyard total to 14 hectares. To help with wine making, viticulture and sales, sons Alex and Benoit joined the Domaine after having worked in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. Alex and Benoit have loosely split the responsibilities of the operation with Benoit more focused on the vineyards and Alex more focused on the cellar. There first vintage was 1995 and they took over control of the vineyards and winemaking in 1999.
