Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils owns a total of 7.5 acres of this most famous of the Grand Crus of Chablis, more than any other producer in the region. Their primary parcel sits on the high portion of the hillside with a direct southeast exposure. With the steep grade, drainage of the kimmeridgien soils is quick leading to low yields of the densely planted vines. Vinification: A sizable 40% of the final blend is aged in oak cask, although only a small percentage is new barrels. The oak contact is unobtrusive and is a testament to the sheer power of this Grand Cru.

Wine AdvocateWhen I tasted the 2015 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos from barrel, I opined that it was not showing at its best. Now in bottle, it reveals a well-defined bouquet with scents of white flowers, granite, smoke and a subtle walnut scent emerging with time. The palate is very well balanced with good body and presence in the mouth, fresh and mineral driven with a tightly wound finish that suggests it will provide 15-20 years drinking pleasure.

BurghoundA reserved and ripe nose features white orchard fruit and floral notes set off by deft touches of wood and citrus peel. There is excellent richness to the overtly powerful and concentrated medium plus weight flavors that possess ample amounts of dry extract that confer a textured feel to the impressively intense and mouth coating finish. This is a very good 2015 that should repay mid-term cellaring.
