The Moreaus have been knocking about Chassagne-Montrachet in Burgundy since 1809, so they know the lay of the land. This bourgogne rouge is a welcoming handshake to the red wines of Moreau. It is made mostly from pinot noir, so it is quite light to medium-bodied in style. There is more earthy, savoury characters on the nose than fruit, but the palate does bring some fleshy, black cherry fruit to the party, along with mellow tannins and a soft, dry finish. It cries out for food, so try it with a mix of deli-meats.
Bernard Moreau et Fils Wine Reviews and Accolades
‘An earthy, fresh and ripe dark berry fruit nose merges into round, generous and fleshy flavors where the supporting phenolics are clearly mature. This is on the rustic side but delicious and while it could be enjoyed immediately, it will also repay a few years of cellar time’ 86 Points - Drink 2014. Burghound
