2015 Domaine Moreau-Naudet
Cracking 'straight' Chablis - it is the texture that really enthralls - so slick, it just flows so well over the palate - clean as a whistle but with great notes of peach and some citrus pep. Cracking stuff made here in such a difficult year fro the team. 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.
This is also aromatically fresh and ripe though the nose is less obviously exotic in character with its array of pear, apple and soft floral elements. The rich and relatively supple flavors possess a succulent mouth feel while delivering solid length on the clean and dry finale. Interestingly, this isn’t quite as concentrated as the Petit Chablis but there is slightly better depth. Drinking range: 2018 - Rating: 87 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2018)

White currant, lemon, ripe apple fruit. Generous, medium bodied, soft acid - everything you want from Chablis. Drinking range: 2016 - 2019 Rating: 16 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.
