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 thought-provoking 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.
The vineyards for the Bourgogne are in Chassagne-Montrachet, just on the other side of the road from village (AOC) vineyards. Fermented in 10%-30% new French oak barrels, using naturally occurring yeast. Aged in 10%-30% new French oak barrels. Aged for 12 months. Bottled without fining and usually without filtration.
