The young and talented David Moreau is definitely one to watch. He had a tough go at it early with his grandfather in the family’s Santenay vineyards. He joined his father straight out of enology school and they didn’t see eye to eye, which led David to broaden his experience at other domaines (like Hubert Lamy!) for some time. Finally after a few years, David received a message from his grandmother who told him that if he’d like to take over the estate, now is the time as his grandfather was going to retire and either sell or pass it on to him. David accepted on one condition: he wanted complete control over everything. The answer was yes and the rest will be written in the family history books.

At the top of David’s list was the conversion to organic farming. The cellar craft was more patiently executed and the elevage more observed to better understand the strength of each vineyard site. His wines are clean and pure, void of faults and honestly made. They lead with savory earth and soft red flowers, followed by charming red and black fruits. They are special wines and deserve to be enjoyed as food with your dinner.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
