William Kelley, The Wine Advocate 88/100
The only wine in Moreau's cellar that had already been bottled when I visited, the 2017 Bourgogne Chardonnay is indicative of the range's stellar quality this year, offering up a youthfully tight bouquet of crisp pear, lemon oil and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and ample but incisive, with tangy acids balancing its generous mid-palate volume. While it will be charming in its youth, don't be afraid to age it for a few years.

The Domaine can be traced back to 1809 with the construction of the first family cellar by Auguste Moreau, in the 1930's Marcel Moreau purchased the majority of the vineyards that the family owns to this day, and in the early 1960's at a very young age Bernard Moreau had to take over the cellars and vineyards and in 1977 the estate was renamed Domaine Bernard Moreau. In turn his sons Alex and Benoît joined the Domaine after having worked in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa, their first vintage in 1995 and they took over the vineyards and winemaking in 1999. Alex and Benoit share the running of the estate with Benoit focused on the vineyards and Alex in the cellar.
