2018 Domaine Bernard Moreau Chassagne-Montrachet (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1487398 90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Village had been blended in July and fined three weeks prior to my visit. It has a delightful bouquet of orange blossom, tinned peach and touches of wild mint, quite intense for a Village Cru. The palate is taut, fresh and spicy on the entry, with touches of white pepper and fennel infusing the citrus fruit. An almost clinical saline finish lingers in the mouth. Superb.

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chassagne villages here was all ready for bottling and was just settling in for another month or so prior to its mise. The wine had been assembled at the end of July and fined the last week of October, so it was showing very well in mid-November. The nose is pure and very floral this year, offering up a fine blend of pear, apple, a lovely base of soil, lemon blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and succulent at the core, with a zesty girdle of acidity, lovely focus and grip and impressive backend mineral drive on the complex and beautifully balanced finish. Fine juice. (Drink between 2020-2045) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Discreet wood influence sets off the ripe aromas of various white-fleshed fruit along with hints of matchstick and lemon rind. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess both good detail and punch, all wrapped in a less refined but notably more complex finale. This is a quality Chassagne villages. "Burghound Outstanding!" Inner quote mark (6/2020)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There are fully 125 barrels of the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet Village, a lovely wine in the making that reveals aromas of warm bread, citrus oil, fresh peach and dried white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and nicely concentrated, with fine cut and a well-defined finish. That there's so much volume this year is great news for Moreau fans. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

91-94pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "This is a few months behind where it would normally be and will not be bottled before late January. Pale lemon colour with a really classy chiselled bouquet and a superb wealth of predominantly white fruit right across the palate to a clean cut finish. This is brilliant wine and seems fully concentrated. And what’s more he has 100 barrels of this. Tasted: December 2019."
