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 thoughtprovoking wines of the appellation. Employing a style of wine making that might best be described as hands-off, Bernard produces Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that are sensual, opulent and utterly delicious.
This is the largest cuvee of the domaine with production around 2,000 cases. The wine is sourced from both sides of appellation, about 1/3 is from below Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot and Champgains (offering minerality), and 2/3 from near the border of Puligny-Montrachet (offering freshness and fruitiness). The grapes are blended together at the press.
