Broad shouldered, strongly built, with great richness and bridled power, this unfolds its layers on the palate, rich, structured with ripe acid lending balance and pushing the length on, a great wine. L&S (Nov 2016)

(from 7 different parcels of 50+ year old vines that total 1.7 ha). A much more floral nose invokes ample citrus and white orchard fruit aromas that are liberally laced with an abundance of classic Chablis elements along with hints of clove and anise. As is almost always the case, the big-bodied flavors are more obviously powerful and punchy than those of the Preuses while culminating in a driving, explosive and mineral-driven finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. Still, this is most impressive though note that it is also very clearly built-to-age and will need at least some. Drinking range: 2018 - 2026 Rating: 92-95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2018)
The late Stéphane Moreau’s best wine in 2015 - and the one I shall buy a few bottles to remember him by - came from this east-facing, old vine parcel. The oak is very understated here, allowing the complex, briney, oyster shell notes to express themselves. Long and saline.

Loads of glycerol texture here, and a grassy, herby style to go with the concentrated citrus fruit. Quite sour to finish. Voluminous, for sure, but not much more interesting in terms of flavour range than their premiers crus. Drinking range: 2017 - 2027 Rating: 17+ Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)
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.
