"Moreau had already bottled the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes Rouge to capture its explosive fruit, and the wine is showing very well, bursting with aromas of dried rose petals, peonies, cherries and sweet soil tones. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, open-knit and flavorful, with a crunchy core of fruit.
The 2017 vintage is a great success across the board at Domaine Bernard Moreau, one of the most exciting addresses in the Côte d'Or. Incisive, intense and elegantly textural, this is a thrilling range of white Burgundies, from a modestly-priced Bourgogne Blanc all the way to Chevalier-Montrachet. What's more, the wines are among the best prospects for sustained bottle aging of any in the Côte de Beaune, as they have as yet been untouched by the systematic premature oxidation that has plagued some of the region's most famous domaines. I speak from experience, as this is the white Burgundy producer best represented in my personal cellar! Moreau also produces some of the finest red Chassagne-Montrachet to be found, a true insiders' choice that shrewd consumers would do well to hunt down. " Robert Parker 89 Points
