Producer: David Moret
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.
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.
