2015 Domaine Moreau-Naudet
Tasted in the cellars with Virginie she said it was just coming back to life as it was settling post fermentations - and she's right - this was looking bright, juicy and exciting. As ever, so far from being Petit - this really delivers - offering more joy than so many 'Chablis' available at comparable prices. L&S (Jan 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Benchmark Petit Chablis. Crisp and long with notable shellfish and mineral hints. Lemon zest and green apple on the nose, with a fresh, classy finish. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 92 Andrew Howard, Decanter (Apr 2017)
There's lots of classic Chablis character here - oyster shell, lemon and apple, and creamy texture. Good concentration for Petit Chablis - a lovely surprise. Drinking range: 2016 - 2018 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.
