    December 15, 2020 - Superb energy and clarity, keeps going, spicy, baked apple, balanced fruit. 92-93

    July 20, 2020 - Meh - good, but nothing too special. Chiseled, stony, lemony, slightly grassy. Some speak of a likeness to Roulot but we certainly didn’t see any.

    April 29, 2020 - The 2012 Bernard Moreau Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Grandes Ruchottes showed a lower acidity profile and slightly higher alcohol than the 2013 next to it. Fresh pineapples and ripe lemon with creamy reductive note on the mid-palate. Impressive minerality and richness on the palate, knocking on Grand Cru doors. (85/100)

    April 25, 2020 - In 12/13/14 vertical. Full, intense and appealing spice- and mineral-filled nose. The palate is bright and lively with good rich fruit. The balance is perfect. A wine of concentration, precision and cut. In harmony and my favorite of the vertical for right now.

    April 25, 2020 - Domaine Bernard Moreau Virtual Tasting with Alex and Martine Moreau (Planet Earth): In sensational 12/13/14 vertical, each getting a few hours of air before tasting. Apple and baked apple with both sweet and savory spice. Starts out rich and mostly ripe, but finishes with a long, bright, nearly tart finish. Very good now, still possibly further upside.
