2017 Domaine Bernard Moreau Chassagne Montrachet Blanc
"The domaine’s excellent Chassagne villages cuvée was in the same stage of development as the Saint Aubin, having been assembled and already fined prior to my visit. The 2017 vintage is very strong for this excellent village wine, with the nose delivering an elegant and very floral constellation of apple, pear, a pungent note of lemon blossoms, a fine base of chalky soil tones, citrus zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, long and seamlessly balanced, with bright acids, excellent focus and grip, lovely nascent complexity and a long, vibrant and classy finish. Fine juice. "(12/2016) 91/100 John Gilman
"The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet Village is also showing brilliantly, opening in the glass with notes of citrus oil, fresh pear, white flowers and hazelnut. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with racy acids, chalky structuring extract and a long, mineral finish. This is Moreau's largest cuvée by some margin, and it's a terrific introduction to the domaine style. What's more, I am still drinking the 2008 and 2010 vintages from my own cellar, so I can attest to how gracefully it ages. (WK)" (1/2020) 91/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Pale, bright yellow. Very pure aromas of pear and flowers. Dense and lightly saline, with an element of sucrosité countered by harmonious acidity. This nicely fine-grained, rather full village wine finishes with a firming note of citrus fruits. It may merit 90 points if it develops a bit more grip with further élevage. (ST)" (1/2019)
"Ready for December bottling. Lovely lemon and lime colour, a fresh nose with great energy but also a ripeness of fruit. Great linear intensity, really impressive for Chassagne and then the fleshy oak infused texture. Ripe but perfectly balanced. Tasted: November 2018." 92/100 Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.
