Frequently among my favourite wines at the domaine, this spicy, concentrated, lees-rich Premier Cru was planted in three stages and has an average age of around 40 years. Beneath the texture, weight and stone fruit flavours, embellished by notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, there's plenty of supporting acidity and some tannic grip. (TA)
Bursting with aromas of ripe citrus, pear and mint that are framed by a deft touch of oak, Moreau's 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie is medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and precise. Racier than the more enveloping Chenevottes, it's also more tender and charming than the incisive Vergers. (WK)
A slightly riper nose freely offers up notes of petrol, citrus peel, white peach and honeysuckle. The more refined medium weight flavors also possess a wonderfully textured mouthfeel along with a bit more volume before terminating in a palate coating, focused and long finale that is noticeably more complex. This is really quite good and worth your interest.
The 2018 Maltroie from Domaine Moreau is also excellent, but it is a bit less flattering out of the blocks than either the Vergers or the Chenevottes and will want a bit of bottle age before it really starts to blossom. The bouquet is pure and promising, delivering a mix of apple, a touch of tangerine, lovely soil tones, orange peel, vanillin oak and a gentle topnote of citrus flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nicely soil-driven in personality, with a lovey core of fruit, good acids and grip, fine focus and a long, nascently complex and vibrant finish. All this lovely Maltroie will need is a bit of bottle age.
The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet La Maltroye 1er Cru has a crisp and focused bouquet with mineral-driven orange blossom and light apricot aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded texture, lightly honeyed, tropical notes of passion fruit and guava with a creamy finish. (NM)
Much tighter on the nose than the Chenevottes. Plenty of citrus but more mineral in aroma. The merest hint of spice. Tight and yet with a lovely creamy texture. Great precision allied to generosity. A lovely citrus mouth-watering finish. Pulls in on the finish with precision and freshness. Juicy and intense at the same time. (JH) 17+/20 points
