TASTING NOTES

"The white peaches and nectarines are underpinned by lemons and yellow grapefruit on the nose. The palate has a very rich and attractive feel with a fleshy and layered ascent to the long, full and fluid finish. The fruit holds and holds. The minerals come eventually. This is exceptional. Try from 2025." JamesSuckling.com

"Once again the presence of moderate wood influence does not suppress the expressiveness of the mildly exotic white orchard fruit and oyster shell aromas that also display plenty of petrol character. The delicious and succulent medium plus weight flavors possess ample amounts of minerality and sappy dry extract that buffers the lemon-tinged acid spine shaping the powerful, complex and impressively persistent, dry and crisp finale. This too is very promising." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 76

"Even with the advantage of frost protection, Moreau only achieved yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare with his 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, but it was enough to mature half of the cuvée in tank and half in barrel. The wine unwinds slowly in the glass with aromas of wheat toast, beeswax, green apple, ripe citrus fruits and almond paste, followed by a full-bodied, satiny and racy palate that's quite taut and fine-boned, with a penetrating, chalky finish." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #244

"A suave style, combining peach, apple, lemon and oak spice notes with a velvety texture and vibrant structure. Comes together nicely on the lingering aftertaste. Should be even better in a year or two. Best from 2020 through 2028. 1,250 cases made, 250 cases imported." Wine Spectator
