Overview of the Wine
David Moret is a micro-négociant making only white wines in his small cellar in Beaune. He studied oenology, but then went on to sell winemaking supplies before finally deciding to make wines himself. With no family-owned vines, he bought grapes to vinify, purchasing his first barrels in the late 1990s and starting the Moret-Nominé label in 2000.

Since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from top growers, to press and ferment in his cellars. Fermented using indigenous yeasts, the wines are bottled without fining or filtration, because of the natural settling that occurs during their period in oak. The Meursault Premier Cru ‘Les Charmes’ is more aromatic in style, while the Meursault Premier Cru ‘Les Perrières’, from a small production, has a wonderful mouth-filling texture with steely, racy acidity. Its concentration, depth and complexity is worthy of Grand Cru status.

The Saint-Romain is lean and elegant with refreshing lime aromas and makes an excellent introduction to David’s refined yet intense wines. From the Côte Chalonnaise, his Rully strikes the characteristically Burgundian balance between acidity and richness, with bright fruit, nuts, oatmeal and notes of honey. ‘Le Grand A’ Aligoté, is made from Aligoté grown on 60-year-old vines. It is not your typical Aligoté, being extremely concentrated (due to the old vines) and given the royal treatment with 18 months in French oak, of which a portion is new. His stunning Chassagne-Montrachet is made from 50-60-year-old vines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Pale golden reflections in the glass. Lemon aromas and buttery characteristics. On the palate, balanced acidity and a mineral touch round off the citrus flavours before a lingering finish.
