Routinely among the very finest bottles to emerge from Burgundy yearly, the Domaine Bernard Moreau is highly-collectible and of stunning quality. In recent years the ship was steered by brothers Alex and Benoit - the former minding the cellars and Benoit in the vineyard. Despite Benoit's exit in 2020, the entire line of wines - from Bourgogne to the Grand Crus - are world-class.

Bernard Moreau

Though there are roots dating back to the early 19th century, the Domaine's quality truly garnered acclaim about a decade after the ascendency of Bernard Moreau, who took over at the ripe age of 14. In the mid-90s, brothers Alex and Benoit became involved in the estate and further propelled the wines to new heights of quality and collectability. Since his brother's exit in 2020 to begin his own eponymous label, Alex Moreau has taken full reign of both the cellars and the vineyard .

The Domaine's holdings include vines dating back to 1939, with generally old vines on average that aid the deep, lush flavors of the wines both red and white. More famous for their white wines, the clay soils throughout their vineyards lend that trademark texture and depth of flavor. The wines will see about 10-20% new oak on average; the exceptions are with the Grand Crus, where often there will only be enough fruit for 1-2 barrels. The Grand Crus are products of long-term leases, rather than Domaine-owned land. The farming is consistent, seeking lower yields through careful pruning and selection of fruit. The reds are similarly managed, though without any filtration or fining, or even any racking during elevage. The reds have improved year after year into incredibly pure styles of Pinot Noir.

So what makes these wines so divine? Possessing truly the best plot of each vineyard site, the Moreau family has a keen eye for perfect ripeness that provides the sumptuous textures and structure that will aid aging. The Bourgogne tasted blind, even, reminds many of Premier Cru bottlings and is among the best value white Burgundies each vintage. Even when the fad was reduction and leaner styles, the Moreau wines preserved their tradition and shone through as one on the pinnacle of quality.

The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers 1er Cru has a more reserved and austere bouquet compared to the Clos Saint-Jean, featuring scents of dewy green pasture and mountain streams and more malic in style. The palate is very well balanced with a keen line of acidity, notes of lemon rind mixed with orange pith and a touch of white peach and a little tangerine toward the elegant finish, which brims over with energy. Alex Moreau mentioned that this has the higher acidity of his cuvées, and you can feel it (in a good way).
