Firm reduction pushes the underlying fruit to the background. On the plus side there is both good volume and mid-palate density to the round and mouth coating flavors that offer acceptable depth and length on the saline-inflected finish. While this may tighten up once it is bottled, today it is almost soft and a bit blurry. Drinking range: 2019 - Rating: 87-89 Allen Meadows, 2018)

Chalky citrus but a little richer if less expressive on the nose than the Pargues. Full and rich in the mouth. Ripe lemon fruit and generous to the long finish. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 18 Julia Harding MW, 2017)

Ripe apple fruit tinged with a bitter herby element - again, very different from their Montmains and Vaillons. Attractive muskiness. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - 2017)

Domaine Moreau-Naudet

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.
