Bernard Moreau 2017 Chassagne-MontrachetRegular price £59.95
Domaine Bernard Moreau is one of the stars of Burgundy, producing exceptional Chassagne-Montrachet from a wide selection of top vineyards. The village wine represents 40% of the production and is wonderful value. 30% is from the south of Chassagne, below the Champs Gains and Morgeot Premier Cru vineyards and the rest from the north on the border with Puligny.
A deep and intense creamy citrus ripeness on the nose with just a touch of oaky spice in the background adding a savoury complexity. Succulent and rich, balancing ripe fruit and lively acidity. Expressive and giving and no reason it should not age but why wait? People are losing the taste for older wine, thinks Alex Moreau. Peachy long fresh finish. Pure pleasure.
