David Moret Meursault Les Narvaux
David Moret Meursault Les Narvaux is a lieu-dit located next to Genevrières and Poruzots in Meursault. The southerly aspect and shallow soils give the wine richness and roundness on the palate, balanced by fresh acidity. 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.
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.

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.
The Saint-Romain is lean and elegant with refreshing lime aromas and makes an excellent introduction to David’s refined yet powerful wines. From the Côte Chalonnaise, his Rully strikes the characteristically Burgundian balance between acidity and richness, with bright fruit, nuts, oatmeal and notes of honey.
‘Le Grand A’ Aligoté is made from Aligoté grown on 60-year-old vines. It is not your typical Aligoté, being extremely concentrated (due to the old vines) and given the royal treatment with 18 months in French oak, of which a portion is new. The Meursault Premier Cru ‘Les Charmes’ is more aromatic in style, while the Meursault Premier Cru ‘Les Genevrières’ has a richer and more complex fruit character, balanced by racy acidity.
David’s Premier Cru ‘Les Combettes’ is new this year, coming from one of Puligny-Montrachet’s most northerly Premier Cru ‘climats’. It combines the racy minerality of Puligny with the rounder body of Meursault, which lies on its border. His stunning Chassagne-Montrachet is made from 60 to 70-year-old vines and boasts notes of white stone fruits, toasted almonds and hints of honeysuckle.
‘Les Narvaux’ is a vineyard which overlooks the valley of Meursault, situated nearby ‘Les Genevrières’ premier cru. The vines are planted on calcareous, shallow soils and have a southerly aspect, producing wines of great concentration.
Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were pressed immediately to retain the delicate aromas. The must went through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, and was then aged for 12 months. After bottling it rested in the cellars for six months. David only uses 25% new French oak, to ensure that the fine fruit character of his Meursault shines through.
