2016 Domaine Moreau-Naudet
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)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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)
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.
