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.
There are several climats of Maltroie (La Maltroie, Les Places, and Ez Crets). The domaine sources from each of the latter two with one of the parcels being next to Gagnard’s plot. The soils are deeper in this plot, similar to Vergers vs. more gravel in the Maltroie down the road. These are bigger, richer wines with length and minerality.
