Domaine Bernard Moreau Chassagne Montrachet Village Blanc 2018

The wine is sourced from both sides of appellation, about 1/3 is from below Chassagne Montrachet Morgeot and Champgains (offering minerality), and 2/3 from near the border of Puligny-Montrachet (offering freshness and fruitiness). The grapes are blended together at the press.

Discreet wood influence sets off the ripe aromas of various white­fleshed fruit along with hints of matchstick and lemon rind. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess both good detail and punch, all wrapped in a less refined but notably more complex finale. This is a quality Chassagne villages. 2023+ 


The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Village had been blended in July and fined three weeks prior to my visit. It has a delightful bouquet of orange blossom, tinned peach and touches of wild mint, quite intense for a Village Cru. The palate is taut, fresh and spicy on the entry, with touches of white pepper and fennel infusing the citrus fruit. An almost clinical saline finish lingers in the mouth. Superb. 2021-2036
