Withheld power on the nose, rich citrus and peach, floral, fine and concentrated. Palate is taut and intense, citrus, some toasty oak, but then a pure mineral drive, rich acid, grip and saline length, impressive.

Domaine Moreau-Naudet: Full Wine List and Profile
RIP Stéphane, you will be missed. Our deepest condolences go out to all your family and friends.
Stéphane Moreau, is not related to the other Chablis Moreaus. His father was from Brittany, and that it is from his mother's Naudet side of the family that he has inherited his sizeable (22 hectare) domaine of very well-placed vines.
He is obviously influenced by Vincent Dauvissat, who recommended him to us. Superhuman work has been done in the vineyards to bring yields under control (no herbicides or anti fungal treatments are used), pressing technology has been brought up to date, and harvesting is by hand (sadly rare in Chablis, if not amongst the growers we work with).
In the cellar he uses barrel-élevage, but not in such a way that oakiness can readily be detected in the wines (all his barrels are steamed rather than charred and he uses no new oak except for in the straight Chablis, and then only one barrel per 100hl in order to age it prior to using for the Premiers Crus).
He also keeps the wines for a much longer period on the lees than most in order for them to gain more complexity and flesh.
