Chassagne Montrachet Vergers Bernard Moreau 91 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Matured in around 25 to 30% new oak, it has a floral bouquet: hints of white flowers accompanying the citrus fruit dallying with walnut. The palate is lively and citric on the entry with orange zest and Clementine notes, the acidity taut and lending linearity toward the long, shaved ginger-tinged finish. This should be a delight once in bottle...91-93" WA 12/14 "This offers a slight step up in aromatic depth with a very fresh lemon rind, spiced pear and softly floral suffused nose. Here too there is an attractive texture to the nicely concentrated middle weight flavors that evidence a light minerality on the precise, complex and energetic finish. In a word, lovely...90-92" BH 06/15 "Pale, bright yellow. More floral and initially less yellow-fruity than the Maltroie, but a ripe peach quality emerged with aeration. Displays ripe fruits and flowers with air, with nicely integrated acidity leading to a tight finish featuring brisk notes of lemon and mandarin orange. Moreau's vines are planted on rocky soil on the north side of the cru, which he says always produces fruit with good acidity and low pH...91+?" Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media 09/15
