Globally down to about a quarter of normal production. This will be bottled in January 2018. Lovely bright feel. There's that fruit again. Nicely ripe. Good smooth lines. Good acidity too, touch of iodine, but this is slick and polished and on the fruit really. Clean and nicely balanced. L&S (Oct 2017)

The 2016 Chablis Village is simultaneously purer and more exotic than the Petit Chablis that preceded it, bursting with aromas of musky peach, ripe apples and flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and textural, with a glossy attack but good underlying acidity. Like many 2016s, it will drink well in the near term.

Lovely edge to this on the nose. Really draws you in as though it will satisfy any thirst. Pure, unadorned, without great depth and already approachable. Great transparent aperitif. Drinking range: 2018 - 2024 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)
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.
