Somewhat surprisingly to many of us, half of the fraternal team behind the Bernard Moreau wines split in 2020 to create his own label:Benoit Moreau, the man behind the vineyard work for so many years. He's got half of the greatest vineyards in one of the most superb collections of Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin that exist today. And nobody knows it yet. Well...hardly anybody, that is.

Benoit Moreau

After 22 years of making wine together, however, the two Moreau brothers set to dividing the land they inherited from their father, a splendid portfolio of Premier Crus in Chassagne and Saint-Aubin of which Benoit now claims 4 hectares.  His first vintage in 2020 consisted entirely of purchased grapes while the estate was settled, but even those first wines showed an immense talent emerging.

In 2021, Benoit also purchased an additional 1.7 hectares in Beaujolais, split between Beaujolais Villages and the famed crus of Chiroubles and Morgon. Those wines are bottled under the L'Arlésienne label, crafted much like Benoit treats his Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge wines: at least partial whole cluster fermented with ambient yeasts in stainless, amphorae or demi-muid - the one difference being the tank, whereas his Chassagne wines are aged in Burgundy barrels, some portion of which will be new oak, vintage-dependent. 

Of course, the Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin whites are tremendous, as is the tradition of the surname. Even the Bourgogne, too - a blend of 3 villages in Chassagne, fermented and aged in used oak. Only the village-level Chassagne-Montrachet sees new oak, just 10%. 

In case we weren't entirely clear, our love for these wines is immense, as they are beautifully textured, precise wines unburdened by much outside influence such as oaky flavors or huge amounts of reduction; just profoundly energetic, memorable and sure to be long-lived.
