A completely different nose that is much more floral in character also evidences notes of oyster shell and algae, both of which can also be found on the rich, stony and almost painfully intense flavors that carry a gorgeous sense of underlying tension to the explosive, detailed and driving finish that is also extremely dry. 2015+ Rating: 91-94 Allen Meadows, 2010)

Fine nose, very nice ripe opulent apple and pear fruit quality, subtle oak, very good intensity with fine-textured fruit quality, and lovely richness through to a fine dry finish with a citrusy, mineral streak. Rating: 91 The Wine Gang - 2010)

Great mineral intensity on the nose. Racy and sinewy with real purity and some openness. Very well managed – no astringency. Should develop into something pretty elegant. You could drink this already with pleasure but I’m suggesting holding off till it develops a little more. 2012-2019 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - 2010)

Domaine Moreau-Naudet

Virginie Moreau is proving more than equal to the task of taking over from her husband Stéphane. Stéphane, who was influenced by Vincent Dauvissat (who recommended him to us many years ago, and who remains an incfluence here) was vigneron whose star burned very brightly, and the domaine continues along the lines he set, working organically, hand-picking, aiming for optimum maturity while avoiding any botrytis influence. The cellar-work is also masterful, using barrel-élevage, but not in such a way that oakiness can readily be detected in the wines (all the barrels are steamed rather than charred and there is 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). Virginie is proving to have what it takes to build on Stéphane's legacy, and the wines here, full of racy character, textural depth and complexity, are as fine as they have ever been.
