Domaine Bernard Moreau Bourgogne Chardonnay 2013
In the mouth the wine is soft, full, round and elegant. Matches well with all kind of delicatessen, as well as fish dishes. Part of the wine matures in stainless steel vats, the other part in wood barrels. Green gold color, subtle aromas of vanilla and hazelnuts on the nose, coming from the time spent in wood.
Bernard Moreau is a viticulteur based in the village of Mancey, in the northernmost part of the Macon wine region.

The Bernard Moreau Bourgognes transcend their origins and are among the finest estate-bottled Burgundy values available. Moreau adheres to the principle of sustainable agriculture. He takes great care to ensure that his vines are in excellent health by constantly observing the vegetative cycle and the natural environment.
