Maison Moillard-Grivot is a well known negociant firm in Nuits-Saint-Georges – established in 1850 and while it’s an old reknown firm – the reputation is not so prominent these days. The 1992 vintage is however a very fine vintage for the whites – although some wines now are starting to fade somewhat. This Chassagne is however an old school white .. most likely with a very healthy dose of SO2 and the grapes were most likely not pressed with a gentle hand – in other words a bit rustic. It is however still very fresh, with a lovely complex nose notes of apple, pear and hazelnuts/almonds – hints of roasted coffee as the wine gets air in the glass. On the palate – well structured for the vintage, with plenty of grip and a nice mid-palate fruit, a bit rustic but with lovely detail. It’s quite long for this level and with a fine intensity. A very enjoyable wine with both the foie gras and the fish.
