What the Critics say
Always the premier cru with the highest acidity and lowest pH in the Moreau cellar, the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers only finished fermenting in June 2018, so it was a little less put together aromatically, unfurling with coaxing to offer up notes of green orchard fruit, rock salt and waxy lemon rind. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, searingly intense and electric, with a lovely line and length. The Vergers has been a highlight of the range for the last few vintages, and that run of success continues in 2017.
Bernard Moreau is now working with his two sons, Alexandre and Benoît, who joined the domaine in 1995 and 1999. The estate produces wines from 13 different terroirs located around Chassagne-Montrachet. All the wines are made in order to truly express their terroir.
