2015 1er Cru Montmains Domaine Moreau-Naudet
Sleeker higher toned fruit, lime, apricot, taut and gripping, bracing juicy acid, plenty of fruit weight, delicious mineral length, a joy! L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(from Montmains proper). Notes of grapefruit, lemongrass and white peach lead to succulent and exceptionally rich, indeed even seductive flavors that possess much better balance on the attractively dry finish. This is a big wine compared to what is typical for Montmains though it should drink well young if desired. Drinking range: 2020 - Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2018)

Rounded palate with more lime fruit than their Vaillons. Generous, fleshy, chewy. Less of the typical Chablis minerality here, but with plenty of fruit to make up for it. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.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.
