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 vinify in his cellars. Fermented using indigenous yeasts, the wines are bottled without fining or filtration after the natural settling that occurs during their period in oak. David uses 20% new oak for his Villages wines and up to 40% new oak for his Premiers and Grands Crus.
On the nose, this Auxey-Duresses has aromas of pink grapefruit and apricots, sweet pastry and hints of struck match. On the palate, the wine has a lovely rich texture, which is well balanced with racy acidity and citrus fruit flavours, which linger on the finish.
This wine is precise and fills the palate with flavours of toasted brioche and tangerines. It is incredibly concentrated with refreshing acidity and is perfectly balanced. It is drinking well now but will also develop favourably with further bottle ageing.
In the right hands, the often-overlooked Aligoté grape variety can shine. Using grapes from old vines gives this Aligoté a beautiful concentration with a lovely balance of power, richness and acidity. Notes of nougat and toasted hazelnuts carry through onto the finish.
This wine is pale golden in colour, with youthful reflections in the glass. On the nose, there are aromas of lemon with buttery characteristics. On the palate, balanced acidity and a mineral touch round off the citrus flavours before a lingering finish.
This Chardonnay has pale golden hues in the glass, with zesty citrus aromas. It 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.
This wine has a beautiful golden colour in the glass. A creamy and powerful Meursault - round and rich on the palate, with orchard fruit characters. It is lifted on the finish by vibrant acidity.
Made in very limited quantities, this is a great example of how exciting Meursault can be. A very balanced and elegant wine, it balances tropical fruit aromas with a poised acidity. A slight creaminess leads into a mouthwatering finish.
The Meursault 1er Cru "Les Charmes" displays white peach aromas with floral notes and subtle hints of toast. The concentrated palate has a creamy texture balanced perfectly by lively acidity that follows through to the finish.
A quintessential Meursault with opulent, layered aromas of citrus fruit, white fleshy peach, and mineral notes. On the palate, it is rich and bold with concentrated flavours of stone fruit, freshly baked pastries and vanilla pod which are perfectly balanced with bright, refreshing acidity.
