The domain was originally founded by Marcel Moreau, grandfather of the current owners. The domain expanded to nine hectares, plus another five hectares of agriculture since 2005. The latest news is that the domain will be split between the brothers in 2021. Alex stays on site and Benoit develops his own winery. The village of Chassagne-Montrachet consists of several plots of land. a third comes from in and around Les Masures bordering Mergeots, the rest from the Puligny border.

This Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2018 is made from Chardonnay grapes grown on brownish limestone and gravel soils. The must ferments in 10%-30% new French oak barrels with indigenous yeasts. The maturation takes place in 100% new French oak barrels for a period of 18 months. The beautifully layered, ultra-floral nose shows notes of ripe white fruit and citrus, framed by soft hints of wood. The generous and extremely rich, full and impressively powerful flavors are not too heavy, as there is enough acid support to balance the admirably focused and seriously lingering, dry and clean finish.

Vineyard for 2018 Bernard Moreau Batard Montrachet Grand Cru

The domain was originally founded by Marcel Moreau, grandfather of the current owners.

Production by Bernard Moreau

The domain expanded to nine hectares, plus another five hectares of agriculture since 2005. The latest news is that the domain will be split between the brothers in 2021. Alex stays on site and Benoit develops his own winery. The village of Chassagne-Montrachet consists of several plots of land. a third comes from in and around Les Masures bordering Mergeots, the rest from the Puligny border. The vinification here is classic, all wines mature in oak barrels. Clarification and filtering are done as little as possible. Elegance and refinement are of paramount importance here. The wines of Moreau have undergone so much progression in quality in recent years that they are now considered among the top of the famous village of Chassagne-Montrachet. Bernard Moreau is the 4th generation to manage the family estate and has a total of 14 hectares of vineyards in 13 different areas within Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. Moreau does not have many secrets when it comes to that progression. For example, his friendship with Michel Colin-Deléger, one of the absolute stars there, and the arrival of his son Alexandre contributed greatly to the improvement in quality. Moreau's wines have received excellent reviews in La Revue du Vin de France and The Vine (Clive Coates).
