2014 1er Cru Montmains Domaine Moreau-Naudet
Touch more fragrant, floral nose, with ripe peach, citrus, some good flesh. The palate is super fine, pure and precise, linear acidity, rich lemon/lime fruit, stony minerality, drive and great length. L&S (Jan 2016)
*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.
Pale greenish straw. Tangy floral and ferny nose. Finely etched and very convincing with real pzazz on the palate. It would probably be a mistake to broach it now but it would be possible… No shortage of fruit. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)

An airy, pure and elegant nose is not necessarily any more refined but it is more complex with citrus-tinged green fruit plus quinine and seaweed nuances. There is plenty of salinity to the equally stony medium-bodied flavors that possess ample amounts of dry extract that confers a textured mouth feel to the chiseled, dry and strikingly long finish. This is also terrific and well-worth your interest. 2021+ Rating: 91-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2017)
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.
