2013 Grand Cru Valmur Domaine Moreau-Naudet
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. Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A complete wine, with an immediate openness. Only 26h/ha from these 45 year old vines. The palate is ample with lost of energy. The finish is chiselled and mineral. Rating: 'Exceptional Success' La Revue du Vin de France (Nov 2015)
Rating: 93 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Jan 2015)
The domaine will continue under Stéphane's wife Virginie, but we will miss the bright star that was Stéphane Moreau-Naudet, who died suddenly in September 2016. Stéphane, who was influenced by Vincent Dauvissat, who recommended him to us many years ago, was a consummate vigneron, and craftsman in the cellar, 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 they use 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). Wines full of racy character and complexity.
