The 2017 old vine Chassagne rouge from Alex Moreau is a terrific wine in the making and will be a fine value. The bouquet is pure and nicely black fruity in personality, offering up scents of sweet dark berries, black cherries, raw cocoa, woodsmoke, pigeon and just a touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and quite suave on the attack, with a good core of fruit, fien soil signature, ripe, moderate tannins and a long, complex and classy finish.
It’s impossible to discuss Chassagne- Montrachet without mentioning the name Bernard Moreau. Year to year, this celebrated producer vinifies and bottles some of the purest, most thought- provoking wines of the appellation. Employing a style of wine making that might best be described as hands-off, Bernard produces Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that are sensual, opulent and utterly delicious.
