2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Domaine Christian Moreau

Tasting Notes

Neal Martin 93/100
The 2018 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru has a delineated, complex bouquet of red apples, flint, sea spray and light walnut aromas, becoming a little smokier with aeration. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry. A precise rather than powerful Les Clos, maintaining exceptional detail through to the slightly candied, stem-ginger-tinged finish. Another excellent 2018 from Moreau. Vinous.com Sept 2020

William Kelley
The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is also showing well, exhibiting notions of orange rind, confit lemon and green apple, followed by a full-bodied, layered palate that's racier and chalkier than the fleshier, blockier Valmur. The Wine Advocate

Vineyard Information

'All Time Top 10 Burgundy Domaines' Clive Coates MW. (An amazing feat - as their first vintage was 2002!) Moreau farms 6 hectares of Chablis Grand Cru and 5 hectares of Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon. These are wonderfully sited vineyards which for generations have been the personal property of the Moreau family. The family now have no connection or contract with the large and respected négociant of the same name. Christian, a larger than life personality, together with his highly qualified oenologue son Fabien are making spectacular handcrafted Chablis. All of their grapes are hand picked from vines which average 40-60 years old. Grand Cru Vaudesir is mainly tank fermented and sees 10% new oak. Grand Cru Les Clos is 30% barrel-fermented, 1er Cru Vaillons and Grand Cru Valmur are 40% barrel-fermented. They are brilliant, bracing, classic, minerally Chablis. Vintage 2010 is the first year the Domaine is certified biodynamic.
