David Moreau is a young winemaker based in Santenay, Cote de Beaune, Burgundy. David Moreau took over part of his Grandfather's domaine in 2009 and has had wine-making experience at Domaine de la Romanée Conti and Neudorf (NZ). He tends to 5 ha in Village and 1er Cru Appellations of the family vineyard, taking care of both the vines and the environment in order to produce great quality wines that reflect each Terroir.
Most of the vines were planted by his grandfather in the 1960s at the bottom of the slope on the Chassagne Montrachet side of Santenay. David Moreau creates both white and red wines from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the traditional grape varieties of Burgundy. The only aim is to produce high quality wines that are not meant to be simply consumed, but also enjoyed and appreciated.
93/100 Decanter (2017 Vintage)
"Intensely racy and refreshing, this wine has a hint of matchstick reduction."
88-91/100 Vinous (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 Meursault Les Pellans offers terrific energy and tension, accented by a touch of reduction. Lime, smoke, slate, white pepper, crushed rocks and a touch of oak (33% new) are all wonderfully alive. Expressive and inviting, with tons of class, the Pellans is both distinctive and delicious."
90/100 Wine Advocate (2017 Vintage)
"Moreau's 2017 Meursault Les Pellans was a little reserved after bottling, but it's a pretty bottle in the making, displaying aromas of crisp pear, white peach and hazelnut, followed by a medium to full-bodied, deep and tight-nit palate with bright acids and good length on the finish."
