2017 Bernard Moreau Chassagne-Montrachet

Classically wrought, somewhat subtle Chassagne - oranges and lemons, with just a whisper of oak among the fruit. Around the mid-palate there is suddenly a lot of depth, like swimming into deeper waters, that clearly betokens a wine with some significant future development. The finish comes home with some round, appealing, peachier fruit. (NT 20/02/19)

Media Reviews

Stephen Tanzer

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. 88-90 points

Julia Harding

A deep and intense creamy citrus ripeness on the nose with just a touch of oaky spice in the background adding a savoury complexity. Succulent and rich, balancing ripe fruit and lively acidity. Expressive and giving and no reason it should not age but why wait? People are losing the taste for older wine, thinks Alex Moreau. Peachy long fresh finish. Pure pleasure. 16.5 points
