Stéphane has a good parcel of well-established vines in Petit Chablis and this cuvée always has a bright and breezy, slightly saline 'coastal' freshness. L&S (Jun 2014)

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: 89-89 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.

We still miss the bright star that was Stéphane Moreau-Naudet, who died suddenly in September 2016, but there is no question that the domaine has proved to be in exceptionally capable hands under his widow Virginie, helped by Stéphane's team.
Stéphane, who was influenced by Vincent Dauvissat (who recommended him to us many years ago) was a consummate vigneron, working organically, hand-picking, aiming for optimum maturity while avoiding any botrytis influence. He was also a master-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 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.
