There's nothing particularly petit about this Chablis from Moreau-Naudet because the aromas are classic, the ripe peachy Chardonnay fruit quality seamlessly pure and juicy and the acidity bringing a suitably incisive balance. Rating: 89 The Wine Gang - www.thewinegang.com (Oct 2014)

The 2013 Petit Chablis comes from 10-year-old vines and sees 18 months in stainless steel vat. It has a slightly smudged bouquet at first, although it gains clarity in the glass and develops attractive notes of marmalade and quince, though they hang about at the back of the stage rather than out front. The palate is well-balanced with crisp acidity, good body and satisfying orange cordial and lemon zest notes lining the finish. Very fine. Drink now-2016.

Domaine Moreau-Naudet

A domaine of 25 hectares, of which 3 are in Petit Chablis, 11 or 12 in Chablis, 3 in Vaillons, 2 in Forets, 1.6 in Montmains, 0.86 in Montée de Tonnerre, and 0.58 in Valmur. (Yes, this does not make 25 - there are further parcels of young vines in the Courgis sector - Beauregards, Côte de Jouan and Goulotte, which are currently sold in bulk).

Virginie (Mimi) 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 influence 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 30% barrel-élevage for all the Premier and the Grand Cru, 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 now really totally confident in her role here, and the wines here, full of racy character, textural depth and complexity, seem to be better with every vintage.
