2014 Grand Cru Valmur Domaine Moreau-Naudet
Lovely concentration, rich and dense, peach, aniseed, touch of floral sweetness. Intense, impressive and tightly wound, core of rich fleshy stone fruit, citrus, aniseed and just a touch of creaminess, superb. 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.
(from a .60 ha parcel planted in 1978 and aged in 30% wood). A subtle touch of wood sets off the highly complex nose that is comprised by notes of white orchard fruit, fresh lemon-lime and sea shore scents. There is outstanding richness to the serious and well-muscled flavors that possess plenty of mid-palate concentration that drenches the palate in extract while buffering the firm acid spine on the strikingly long finish. This presently packs quite a punch and will definitely need a few years to unwind and develop additional depth. 2022+ Rating: 92-94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2017)
Aromatic, wet-stone nose with some density and real juiciness. Great precision and strong ‘mineral’ influence. Drinking range: 2018 - 2028 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
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.
