David Moret studied Viticulture and Oenology at school. Unfortunately, he did not have a family domaine to work at once he graduated. He then entered the wine trade by selling winery equipment to local vignerons, during which he developed close friendships with many of the top growers in the Côte de Beaune. This has allowed David to start his own label in 2000.

One of the new micro-négociants, he is working with many of the growers he has come to know. Since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from the top growers of Meursault to press and ferment in his cellar, always sourced from the same plots of vines. Les Charmes, Les Genevrières and Les Perrières are the finest of Meursault’s 17 Premiers Crus, and many regard ‘Les Perrières’ to be the best vineyard in Meursault, with the power and structure to rival many a Grand Cru from the Côte de Beaune.

He has expanded his production to include Corton-Charlemagne, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint Roman, and Rully. He uses a maximum of 40% new oak to allow the elegance and minerality of the wines to shine through, as well as highlight the quality of the plots from which he sources his grapes.

Rully Blanc 2013

Pale golden in appearance. The nose is full with a varying bouquet of flavors; elderberry, lemon, white peach and hints of flint. The palate strikes the characteristically Burgundian balance between acidity and richness, with bright fruit, nuts, oatmeal and notes of honey, a rounded palate and a long finish.

GRAPE VARIETIES: 100% Chardonnay
REGION: Cote Chalonnaise
CLASSIFICATION: AOP
ALCOHOL: 13%

Grapes were brought straight to the winery and were pressed immediately via an air press, to preserve the precious Chardonnay aromas and flavors. The wine went through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, then ageing for a total of 15 months, before being bottled and resting in the cellars for approximately six months.

Sourced from the northern most village in the Côte Chalonnaise. Here David shows what proper winemaking is. Knocks many other negociant Meursault into a cocked hat with its ripeness and balancing, preserved lemon acidity. Somewhat under the radar at En Primeur time as styled to drink but already has a keen following amongst those in the know. Limited stocks.

Saint-Romain 2013

Pale golden reflections in the glass. Lemon aromas and buttery characteristics. On the palate, balanced acidity and a mineral touch round off the citrus flavors before a lingering finish.

GRAPE VARIETIES: 100% Chardonnay
REGION: Côte de Beaune
CLASSIFICATION: AOC
ALCOHOL: 13%

Grapes were brought straight to the winery and were pressed immediately, to preserve the precious Chardonnay aromas and flavors.

David only used 25% new French oak, to ensure that the fine character of his wine shines through.

The vineyards of Saint Romain are mainly located in a side valley to the west of Auxey-Duresses, in the direction of the communes and vineyards of the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. A little more than half of the production consists of white wine. There are no Grand Cru and no Premier Cru vineyards within Saint Romain.

Meursault Les Narvaux 2014

Like liquid gold in the glass. A creamy and powerful Meursault, it drinks superbly now. Round and rich on the palate, with orchard fruit characters, it is lifted on the finish by good acidity.

Les Narvaux is a lieu-dit vineyard next to Genevrières and Poruzots, has very shallow soils and a southerly aspect. The grapes were all handpicked into small boxes, which ensured the berries remained intact until arrival at the winery.

Puligny-Montrachet 2013

Pale golden hues in the glass. With zesty citrus aromas, this Chardonnay is generous on the palate with spicy undertones and a lingering finish. Delicious and complex, it is difficult to find a white wine quite like it outside of Burgundy.

Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières 2013

Made on a very limited volume, this is a great example of how exciting Meursault can be. A very balanced and rather elegant wine, it offers great balance between tropical fruit aromas and a poised acidity. A slight creaminess leaves a mouthwatering finish.

The 16 ha of Les Genevrieres sit towards the south of Meursault; the name “Genevriere” literally means “Juniperí”, from the many Juniper bushes that lined the hills in the past.

Meursault 1er Cru Les Goutte D'Or 2012

The color is a beautiful pale golden color with green highlights. The nose reveals notes of hazelnut and smoke. The palate is racy, fat powerfull and with much freshness. The finish is long and it is supported by a beautiful minerality. having a very classic flavor profile that is straight, firm and immensely long. This wine should improve with age onver the next few years. Pair it with pâté, freshwater fish, seafood and goat cheese.

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2013

The flagship of David Moret, Corton Charlemagne, a myth, so dense, so buttery, so lush and fruity, soft and at the same time possessing phenomenal minerality. A complexity that has no equal. With enormous depth in the glass. In the mouth very round, ripe and dense.
