BERNARD MOREAU Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot MAGNUM 2015

Bright light yellow. Yellow peach and ripe lemon on the nose; much less open than the Maltroie. Big, rich and round, but with surprisingly firm acidity framing the chewy flavors of lemon drop, menthol, fresh herbs and wildflowers. Finishes dry, suave and long, with lingering notes of flowers, herbs and minerals.

    THE STORY: The domaine is based in Chassagne-Montrachet, and its roots go back to 1809 when Auguste Moreau built its first cellar. Bernard Moreau, the father of Alexandre and Benoit who presently run the domaine, took over the vineyards and cellar in the early 1960s at the age of 14 years, but by the 1970s he had already secured a sound reputation for the domaine. Nowadays, Alex and Benoit belong to the new generation of talented wine makers in the Cote d’Or, who went through formal studies and have experienced working in other wine regions around the world. The Domaine’s most famous own vineyard is its 0.35 hectares of Chassagne-Montrachet 1er cru Les Grandes Rouchotes, but the entire range represent Chassagne-Montrachet at its finest.
