“Readers will already be aware that I revere Alex Moreau as one of the best winemakers in Chassagne-Montrachet, and it is pleasing to see that his reputation is increasing each year" - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

Bourgogne Blanc is dangerous. It's the gateway drink that leads you to more pernicious addictions, so be careful. Before you know it, you will be craving Village level Burgundy, then shelling out for Premier Cru and it's only a matter of time before you are performing all manner of unmentionable acts just to get a single fix of Grand Cru. This fantastic 'entry level' white Burgundy might be the solution. It's so good that you won't feel the need to move onto the hard (to pronounce) stuff. It has tremendous fruit intensity, zingy acidity and a creaminess that is perfectly allied to the brightness of the stone-fruit and pithy citrus flavours and the sparing use of oak. This could easily pass itself off as a village wine, such is the concentration, the purity of flavour and the clear articulation of time and place. We couldn't ask for more from a Bourgogne Blanc. 12.5% alc. Drink now-2021.

NB This holds up very well for at least 3 days after opening if you keep it in the fridge, a good sign that it has some ageing potential. 

Press reviews:

The Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Bourgogne, the only wine that had been bottled, has an attractive apricot blossom-scented bouquet that offers good intensity for a generic white. The palate has a taut, quite linear opening with crisp green apple and a dash of spice, a little short maybe, yet with ample freshness and energy."
