Notes from the Winemaker:

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, Alex Moreau produces Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that are sensual, opulent and utterly delicious. 

Vineyard Profile
  • The vineyards for the Bourgogne are in Chassagne-Montrachet, just on the other side of the road from village (AOC) vineyards.
  • The soils are a little deeper and heavier – mostly clay.
Winemaker's Notes
  • The 1er Cru Chardonnays are barrel fermented and aged in French oak barrels (10%-30% new).
  • The wine spends between 12 and 18 months in wood with regular lees stirring for added texture.
  • Says Bernard, “The spirit of our wine making is to not touch the wine too often. For Chardonnay our aim is to produce very clean and precise wines which are not too austere. We like the minerality and purity.”

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay, which had been bottled by the time of my visit, has a clean, precise apple blossom and citrus-scented bouquet that shows impressive fdefinition for a generic white Burgundy. The palate is taut and fresh with a touch of botter lemon on the entry, superb acidity and a saline finish. You woll not find a better white Bourgogne Blanc in 2018." - Neal Martin (Jan 2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 
"Aromas of orange rind, white peach and fresh pastry preface Moreau's 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural wine that's bright, lively and open-knit. More giving and immediate than the 2017, this will drink well on release." - William Kelley (Jan 2020)
