Tasting Note:

Bernard Moreau’s Chassagne-Montrachet villages is a flagship of the estate, representing 40 percent of their production, and is proof that value can exist in Burgundy. This may not have the name or price tag of a 1er Cru, but make no mistake this is proper Chassagne-Montrachet, replete with character. Harvest began on the 30th August in 2018, a vintage Alex Moreau describes as a “great surprise” owing to the combination of ripeness and freshness. Alcohols registered between 12.5 and 13.3 degrees. A blend of parcels hailing from the north and south parts of Chassagne, this is a wine that represents its origins beautifully. There is no mistaking its appellation – the power and amplitude are a giveaway, but it presents itself so clearly and impeccably. The palate reveals notes of butter, spice and fleshy ripe fruit, whilst a crystalline citrus character offers a brilliance and energy. You feel the substance and deepness of the wine on the mid palate and but the super-long finish lifts and captivates. A very sophisticated Chassagne villages.
