This historical domain of Chassagne-Montrachet preserves as much as possible the brilliance of the fruit in its wines.
In Burgundy, the history of certain families is closely linked with certain villages, which is the case of the Moreaus in Chassagne. Their history dates back to the beginning of the 19th century with Auguste Moreau who built a cellar opposite the famous La Maltroie cru.
It will nevertheless be necessary to wait for the 1930s and Bernard Moreau to begin to see the estate grow. In particular, he acquired plots located on the great terroirs of the appellation, at the time planted with red. This tradition having been perpetuated until today, you will be able to find certain first growths of Chassagne-Montrachet in red and not in white.
In the 1990s, Alexandre and Benoît Moreau joined their father at the estate after having surveyed the vineyards of the New World for a few years. Today they manage the 14 hectares of the estate with a masterful hand. Alexandre Moreau is in the cellar and Benoît Moreau in the vines.
The style of the wines is vibrant and aims to be the most faithful translation of the terroirs from which they come. It is for this reason in particular that you will not see the Moreau brothers using synthetic inputs in the vines. They have also been following biodynamic principles for a few years. In the cellar, aging is longer than before, but the winegrowers limit new wood and batonnage as much as possible, thus preserving the brilliance of the fruit.
