Tasting Notes

“A more complex if moderately similar nose offers more in the way of white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in subtle wood nuances. There is fine mid-palate density to the delicious and appealingly intense medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by bright acidity on the bitter lemon-inflected finale that displays excellent length for its level. This too could use better depth, but more should reasonably develop. Lovely. OUTSTANDING” 89-91 points – Allen Meadows

“Clean mid lemon, assembled on its fine lees but not yet fined. A clean, even and balanced chardonnay nose which develops a richer white fruit with a greengage edge further back on the palate. Some salinity helps provide the tension. Drink from 2024-2028.” 89-91 points – Jasper Morris

After four generations, Bernard Moreau is now working with his two sons: Alexandre and Benoît who joined the domaine in 1995 and 1999. The estate produces wines from 13 different terroirs located around Chassagne-Montrachet.Bernard Moreau & Fils producing around 60% of whites and 40% of reds. All the wines are made in order to truly express their terroir. - Importer Note

Big changes have occurred at the domaine formerly called Bernard Moreau, as brothers Alex and Benoît have split the domaine and now have separate operations (see the reviews for Benoît below). Importantly in this context, while La Cardeuse will remain a monopole for the Moreau family, it was split between the brothers and as of 2021, there are two versions of it. And while it's a nuance, Moreau emphasized that the new domaine name will be Alex Moreau rather than Alexandre. In another change, readers should be aware that the labeling convention for the 2020s from Domaine Bernard Moreau will read "Vinifié par Alex Moreau" (vinified by Alex Moreau). Another important change is that up through and including the 2022 vintage, the domaine exploited 10.5 ha, but it is losing a long-term lease so as of the 2023 vintage, the vines under its control will total 5.8 ha. - Burghound
