2014 Vieilles Vignes Les Pargues Domaine Moreau-Naudet
This takes the aromatic complexity up yet another notch with its dense green fruit aromas that are liberally laced with quinine, mineral reduction and citrus rind. There is first-rate concentration and power for a villages level wine that coats the palate with dry extract on the wonderfully long and deep finale. This is a very high quality effort for its category and is highly recommended, particularly if you can allow it a few years of cellar time first. 2019+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2017)
*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.

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.
