Bernard Moreau's Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014 is a great Burgundian value, and a real opportunity to taste an entry-level wine from this legendary estate based in Chassagne-Montrachet.
Domaine Bernard Moreau produces sensual, opulent terroir-driven wines through its 'hands-off' winemaking approach, letting the soils shine through. The winery was established in 1809 by Auguste Moreau and was expanded in the 1930s. Perhaps most startlingly, Bernard Moreau took over the running at the tender age of 14 in the 1960s.
Husband and wife, Bernard and Françoise Moreau, took the winery to new heights of excellence in the 1970s, before their sons, Alexandre and Benoit, joined to help in the 14 hectares of vineyards and the cellars in the mid-1990s, having gained experience in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.
Today, the brothers still run this great estate, which is renowned for approaching each vintage according to its characteristics and has a reputation for unfiltered, tight, minerally white wines with racy acidity.
