2017 Domaine Moreau-Naudet
Fabulous to see Virginie with a smile back on her face - and no surprise when for the first time in years she has a 'proper' harvest under her belt and a normal quantity of wine to sell with this Village Chablis. This is lovely. Fresh yet really inviting with its breadth and succulence of fruit. Easy and slick and very good. L&S (Oct 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
More concentration than the Petit Chablis with real bite and a bit of a future. Drinking range: 2019 - 2023 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2019)
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.
