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, Alex Moreau produces Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that are sensual, opulent and utterly delicious.

"The 2020 Volnay “Santenots” from Domaine Bernard Moreau is another very refined example, with a touch more plushness on the attack and in the mid-palate than the two Chassagne rouge bottlings this year, but the same sense of precision and low octane. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a classy mix of black cherries, black plums, pigeon, dark soil tones, bitter chocolate, woodsmoke, a touch of currant leaf and a gentle foundation of new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and focused, with a sappy core of fruit, lovely soil inflection and grip, ripe, seamless tannins and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. Fine juice. (Drink between 2034-2080)"  - John Gilman (11/2021)
