Domaine Bernard Moreau is an up-and-rising name for Burgundy whites. Though Bernard Moreau only took over the winery in the 1960s, the domaine has roots going back to 1809 when his ancestor Auguste Moreau built a cellar across from the Champs Gain vineyard and farmed his few hectares of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Domaine only got its name, Domaine Bernard Moreau, in 1977 and has been managed by himself and Françoise Moreau, and now joined in by sons Alex and Benoît after having worked in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. As of now, the Domaine has a total of 14 hectares of vineyards.
As with most great Burgundian estates, terroir is of the most importance hence Bernard Moreau has also been taking utmost care for their vineyards in order to produce superior fruit. They use organic fertilizers and no pesticides to maintain healthy balanced soils; and they do pruning, debudding and green harvesting in August to ensure greater flavor intensity but which generate lower yields. They also plant cover crops in certain vineyards to encourage competition between the crops and soak up more moisture. For the winemaking process, Bernard says their spirit of winemaking is "to not touch the wine too often" and their aim is "to produce clean and precise wines which are not too austere". They like the minerality and purity in their chardonnays.
The 2017 vintage is a great recent vintage for whites and this goes the same for the Bernard Moreau which has seen great success across the board; therefore, we are recommending their Bougogne Blanc which will be a great bottle to start for tasting the domaine's style and is very modestly-priced at only HK$200 per bottle. A fantastic bottle for the summer and to enjoy at home as a daily wine, let me know if you are interested to get a few bottles! -
