This fine domaine is based in Chassagne-Montrachet, and its roots go back to 1809 when Auguste Moreau built its first cellar. The majority of the domaine's 14 hectares (out of which 9 are owned and five are farmed) were assembled by Marcel Moreau in the 1930s. Bernard Moreau, the father of Alexandre and Benoit who presently run the domaine, took over the vineyards and cellar in the early 1960s at the age of 14 years (!), but by the 1970s he had already secured a sound reputation for the domaine. The Batard-Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet (both originate from farmed land) receive 100% new oak, but these barrels are only light to medium toasted to avoid excessive oak character.
