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 AdvocateThe 2015 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos was very tight and perhaps the most leesy of the Grand Crus that I tasted from Christian Moreau. Grapefruit and lychee scents, a little hazy compared to the Valmur and Vaudésir. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, focused and tensile, quite steely for a Les Clos. I think this was not showing its best on the day, as Christian told me he had pumped the wine the previous week, so I will seek to revisit this once in bottle.

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.
