2018 Domaine Moreau-Naudet
The sample we tasted was from from one cuve - of three, that will be blended. Good feel. Yes! This is very promising! Intense, but dry and fresh too. Lovely acidity. Great bounce and ping to the citrus crusted fruit core. Limey, pithy feel on the palate. Good and delicious flow with a fine note of sweetness that pops up from time to time - good effort. L&S (Nov 2019)

The 2018 Petit Chablis is a rich, beautifully layered wine. Apricot, lemon confit, spice and vanillin give the 2018 striking flavor complexity. Supple and polished with lovely textural balance, the 2018 has a lot going for it. Here, too, readers can expect a fairly overt style. Rating: 88-90 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(Jan 2020)
Virginie Moreau is proving more than equal to the task of taking over from her husband Stéphane. Stéphane, who was influenced by Vincent Dauvissat (who recommended him to us many years ago, and who remains an incfluence here) was vigneron whose star burned very brightly, and the domaine continues along the lines he set, working organically, hand-picking, aiming for optimum maturity while avoiding any botrytis influence. The cellar-work is also masterful, 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.
