An amazing example: on close analysis there is wood, there is fine citrus flavour in the fruit, but all in all there is harmony, and the winemaking merely exalts the mineral purity and lifted, spiritual dimension of this amazingly pure and powerful wine. L&S (Dec 2009)

Elegant nose and palate with good acidity. Harmonious with a good mineral grip and a attractive lift on the finish. Nicely balanced with a lovely, long finish. Decanter June 2011 Chablis Grand Cru 2008 Report. 19 points Rating: ***** Decanter Magazine(May 2011)

Moderate reduction renders the nose difficult to evaluate but the wonderfully rich, dense, powerful and gorgeously well-detailed flavors ooze a fine minerality and there is plenty of Chablis character to be found on the racy and tension-filled finish that seems to go on and on. This is a potentially brilliant effort that will require up to a decade to reach its maturity. 2016+ Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, 2010)

White flowers, white honey nose, quite smooth and polished attack that builds up to great length, very good future. Drink 2012-18. (18.5 points). Rating: 18.5 ***** 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.
