Jasper Morris: 91-94 Points

Assembled and fined. Alexandre will be able to bottle this without filtering and is very happy with the fining. Clear pale lemon and lime. Beautifully fine bouquet yet again a masterful example. The blend between the fruit and the thread of mineral acidity is just exactly right and there is no feeling of four square Chassagne. The flesh emerges a little more forcefully at the finish which is exceptionally persistent. Year in year out this si just about the best example of village Chassagne-Montrachet available.

Aromas of pear freshly baked bread nutmeg and citrus zest preface the 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet Village a medium to full-bodied satiny and precise wine that's taut and chalky with a pretty core of fruit and a long saline finish. It's the domaine's biggest cuvée and it shouldn't be overlooked as it ages very well indeed. The 2020 vintage has turned out brilliantly at Domaine Bernard Moreau?but what's new? Alex Moreau readied his harvesters promptly as it takes eight days to pick the whole domaine and began on August 20th. Yields were good and the cellar is full (which is not the case in 2021) with alcohols moderate the highest being 13.4%. As usual the fruit is crushed before pressing (which lasts up to three and a half hours) briefly settled and barreled down (François Frères is the predominant cooper here) for vinification with plenty of lees Moreau doing nothing to discourage quite protracted fermentations which he finds build texture and complexity into the wines. For my palate the results are some of the finest white wines produced on the Côte de Beaune and they occupy a prominent place in my personal cellar. The market is certainly taking notice and prices are rising fast but readers won't want to miss the 2020s.
