The Story

The young and talented David Moreau is definitely one to watch. He had a tough go at it early with his grandfather in the family’s Santenay vineyards. He joined his father straight out of enology school and they didn’t see eye to eye, which led David to broaden his experience at other domaines (like Hubert Lamy!) for some time.

Finally after a few years, David received a message from his grandmother who told him that if he’d like to take over the estate, now is the time as his grandfather was going to retire and either sell or pass it on to him. David accepted on one condition: he wanted complete control over everything. The answer was yes and the rest will be written in the family history books.
