About Bernard Moreau
Domaine Bernard Moreau a Chassagne-Montrachet estate producing wonderfully opulent Rouge and Blancs. The domaine dates from 1809 when Auguste Moreau constructed a cellar in the region and began to cultivate grapes in the appellation. The holdings were increased in the 1930s by descendent Marcel Moreau. The current owner is Bernard Moreau, who took over in the early 1960s at the age of just 14! Today, it is Bernard’s sons Alex and Benoît who lead the business.
Vineyard and Winemaking
Domaine Bernard Moreau comprises 9 ha of vineyards with an additional 5ha (12 acres) famed under contract. Most of this is in Chassagne-Montrachet, although there are also plots in Saint-Aubin and Volnay. The vines are old, yields are kept low and annual production only amounts to around 8,000 cases.
