David Moreau - 2017 Santenay Rouge 1er Cru 'Clos des Mouches'

David Moreau is no longer an emerging star in Burgundy, in the past few vintages he has become a popular fixture at his base in Santenay, the last village of the Cote d'Or. What with years working for the fabled Domaine Romaneé-Conti...As Burgundy has become increasingly expensive and hard to procure, the world has widened it's search propelling estates like this quickly into the light, and we are thankful for such! 

The 2017 Santenay Clos des Mouches again brings together power, tension and energy. This release has a precise, detailed, slightly floral bouquet with black cherries and hints of cassis, the oak neatly woven with the fruit. Stunning! The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin and an ant  line of acidity. This is excellent Burgundy.
