2016 Domaine Louis Moreau Petit Chablis Top Pick!
2016 Domaine Louis Moreau Petit Chablis

Husband-and-wife team Louis and Anne Moreau pretty much do it all here, from the moment the grapes hit the door of their winemaking facility. Louis got his degree in enology from Fresno State and worked for several California wineries before coming home to take over the winery from his father. We have a strong trio of wines from Louis Moreau.

2014 La Chablisienne Chablis "Les Venerables" Vieilles Vignes Top Pick!
2014 La Chablisienne Chablis "Les Venerables" Vieilles Vignes

90 points Decanter: "Yellow citrus married with some exotic hints of mango. Pure, tensile and edgy with bright acids and good grip on the moderate finish." (5/2017) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Bringing together old vines from a number of the Chablisienne cooperative's vineyards, this wine is concentrated and finely structured. Its rich creamed apple and tangy orange zest flavors are lit by acidity and a mineral edge. Drink from 2018. (RV)" (6/2017) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "From 50+ year old vines that see 18 months of élevage. There is loads of Chablis character to the citrus and green fruit suffused nose that leads to solidly con ...Read More »

2016 Maison William Fèvre Chablis "Champs Royaux"

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here too there is good Chablis typicity adding interest to the mineral reduction, citrus rind and discreet floral aromas. There is both good richness and vibrancy to the solidly well-detailed flavors that possess a bit more size and weight but not necessarily better depth and persistence." (10/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chablis Champ Royaux, which comes from purchased grapes, has a clean, grapefruit and lime-scented bouquet. The palate is quite vibrant on the entry, fresh and nicely focused with touches of blackcurrant leaf and lime toward the citrus-driven finish. Th ...Read More »

2016 Domaine de Biéville (Louis Moreau) Chablis

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chablis Villages comes from 47-year-old vines and spent ten months in stainless steel tank. It has a straightforward, slightly tertiary bouquet that feels broody at first, but it opens a little in the glass. The palate is well balanced, with a fine bead of acidity, simple citrus fruit with a touch of lemon rind and a pleasant bitter tang on the economical finish. It just does its job with minimum fuss. (NM)" (8/2017) K&L Notes: Domaine de Biéville was established by Jean-Jacques Moreau in the village of Viviers in the 1970s. The contiguous, 65-hectare vineya... Read More »

2014 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru "Fourneaux" Top Pick!
2014 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru "Fourneaux"

The esteemed co-operative La Chablisienne produces some of the greatest value wines from Chablis that we have the pleasure of tasting. The 2014 showcases a beautiful White Burgundy vintage where everything seems to be in perfect harmony. The wine is brilliant with aromas of pit fruit and lemon zest, the balance of minerality, fruit, acid, and delicate hints of oak all seamlessly come together in a perfectly harmonized Chablis. The Premier Cru Fourneaux site is known for being a twinge warmer, and so the fruit here is fleshed out and overtly charming, but... Read More »

2015 Domaine Laroche "St Martin" Chablis Top Pick!
2015 Domaine Laroche "St Martin" Chablis

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chablis St Martin has what you might describe as a "dainty" nose at first, a little timid, but it soon finds it voice courtesy of its apple blossom and fresh pear aromas, perhaps with a hint of peppermint in the background. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. I appreciate the tension of this Chablis: taut and linear, quite saline in the mouth and this serves to prolong the finish. This is a well-crafted and very delicious Chablis from Gregory Viennois and his team. This comes recommended. (NM)" (8/2016) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A ripe yet agreeably f ...Read More »

2014 La Chablisienne Chablis "La Sereine"

Decanter: "Taut and focused with a restrained cooked apple and pear nose and a multi-layered grapefruit and stone fruit palate." (5/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chablis la Sereine has a crisp, mineral, gypsum-scented bouquet that unfurls nicely in the glass but remains rather aloof. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, rounded in texture, but still fresh with a hint of clear honey and peach towards the long finish. This is quite stylish, if just missing a little complexity compared to its peers. (NM)" (8/2016) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a rich style of Chablis that has the crispness of 2014 ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru "Vaillons"

Once again there is good energy and detail to the stony middle weight flavors that are clearly rich and ripe yet the vibrant and saline-inflected finale avoids any sense of heaviness. Once again, this well-made effort should drink well young and with a few years of bottle age."

2016 Domaine Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre"

93 points Decanter: "The Montée de Tonnerre is another highlight in the Louis Michel range in 2016, opening in the glass with notes of apple, citrus zest, oyster shell, wet stones and a framing of light reduction. The wine is very concentrated and stony, with a good core of fruit, superb depth and lovely tongue-tingling mineral grip on the long finish.Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. (WK)" (10/2017) 93 points John Gilman: "The 2016 Montée de Tonnerre from Domaine Michel was one of the last premier crus to be bottled in the autumn and the wine was still a bit reserved post-bottling.

Drink now through 2020. (BS)" (11/2016) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the expressive nose is slightly fresher and a bit more elegant as well if otherwise compositionally similar. There is once again a very attractive texture to the medium-bodied flavors that are supported by a citrus-tinged acid spine, all wrapped in a generous, lingering and balanced finish. This too should drink well young." (8/2016) Vinous: "Much more aromatic than the basic ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "La Forest" (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chablis 1er Cru la Forest is one of the richer, perhaps more decadent premier crus from Dauvissat this year. It is very pure with wild honey, wild heather, flint and chalky scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity and salinity. It has a straight line as Chablis should and does not fan out on the finish but seems to accentuate its core flavors of sea salt, ginger, flint and white pepper, the latter tingling in the mouth long after the wine has departed.

2015 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses"

95 points John Gilman: "The 2015 les Preuses from Domaine Fèvre is also a great wine in the making and it will be fun to compare its evolution over the coming decades to that of the Valmur. The wine is gorgeously complex on both the nose and palate out of the blocks, soaring from the glass in a blend of apple, par, beeswax, chalky minerality, a touch of tangerine and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, young and very mineral in profile, with a superb core, laser-like focus and a very, very long and racy finish. Classic juice. 2020-2050. ...Read More »

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chablis 1Er Cru Vaillons has a completely different aromatic profile compared to the Séchet, which Vincent puts down to the much deeper soil. There is immense purity on the nose here with scents of lemon curd, slate and sea spray aromas all beautifully sculpted and even shading the impressive 2015. The palate is spine-tingling in terms of harmony on the entry, with a perfect line of acidity. There is impressive body and more structure than you normally find in this premier cru. Perhaps as a consequence you might find it less flattering than othe ...Read More »

2015 La Chablisienne Chablis "La Sereine"

Decanter: "Taut and focused with a restrained cooked apple and pear nose and a multi-layered grapefruit and stone fruit palate." (7/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chablis la Sereine comes from 20-year-old vines and spent 12 months on the fine lees in stainless steel. It has a tightly wound, smoky bouquet,with just a slight reduction that works well. The palate is well balanced with (again) a touch of reduction on the entry, which seems to creep up and smother the tension as the wine aerates. La Chablisienne is the major cooperative in Chablis.

On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and generous on the attack, with a fine core, very good focus and grip and very impressive backend mineral drive and lift on the long finish. 2016-2030."

It has a perfumed bouquet that needs little encouragement from the glass: white citrus fruit, mirabelle and hints of chalk dust. The palate is very pretty with a fine bead of acidity, beautiful poise and impressive vigor. You can feel the mouth tingling long after the wine has departed thanks to the salinity, the senses discretely begging another sip.

There is impressive richness to the solidly intense medium-bodied flavors that offer good salinity on the equally clean and dry finale. This isn't an elegant wine but it's delicious and one that should also be accessible young."

Moderate acidity but harmonious and quite long." K&L Notes: The Les Beauroys vineyard lies on the left bank of the Serein river in Chablis. It generally produces very charming wines. The 2015 from Laroche (a beautifully restored property that shares the same importer as DRC) is a wonderfully fresh, lively, mineral-driven wine that has a fair amount of acidity for the 2015 vintage.

There is excellent volume and fine intensity to the lush and very round medium weight plus flavors that possess fine power, concentration and plenty of mouth coating extract, all wrapped in a citrus-inflected, balanced and impressively persistent finale. This is the best wine in the range in 2013 that again should be accessible young but reward a few years of cellaring as well."

2016 Domaine Gérard Tremblay Petit Chablis

Allen Meadows writes: "The Tremblay family was one of the earliest to adopt machine picking in 1983 and it now practices lutte raisonné and confusion sexuelle in the vineyards. Once the fruit is harvested, it is pressed, allowed to settle for 12 hours and no enzymes are used to help clarify the must. Selected yeasts are added and the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations occur in stainless. However, once the malos are complete, a certain percentage of the wines are racked into barrel; this averages from 10 to 15% for most, though not all, of the 1ers an... Read More »

The wine is stunning on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet offering up scents of apple, lime, a hint of tangerine, smoky overtones, flinty minerality, wet stones and dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, brisk acids and great backend mineral drive on the very young, very long and snappy finish.

It augurs very, very well for the premier crus that had already been bottled and were in the midst of their recovery.

The palate is smooth and slightly honeyed in texture, understated on the entry and it is easy to almost miss the intensity that only hits home once the wine has departed, like a latent reaction. It is a deeply complex les Preuses that will need a decade in bottle to show what it is really made of. But you already know that you ...Read More »

The palate is rounded on the entry, but the roundness and opulence of this Vaudésir is counterbalanced by the acidity. It is perhaps a little overworked and too phenolic on the finish, but it has the density and substance to age over a decade.(NM)" (8/2016)

(SB)" (2/2017) 95 points John Gilman: "The 2015 Clos des Hospices is an outstanding wine in the making. This is the wine produced from a one hectare parcel in Les Clos that the Moreau family purchased from the Hospices in 1904 and which they have always kept separate from their other holdings in the grand cr ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Louis Michel Petit Chablis

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A mildly exotic array of green fruit and citrus scents leads to energetic, detailed and punchy flavors that offer a refreshing, clean and dry finish of average depth and persistence. To enjoy young." (10/2017) Decanter: "The Petit Chablis is very creditable in 2016, offering up an expressive bouquet of ripe peach and citrus, and a medium-bodied, glossy palate impression with nice purity and a touch of saline minerality on the finish. Drinking Window 2018 - 2022. (WK)" (10/2017) John Gilman: "This is going to be a superb example of Petit Chablis. The bouquet is deep and bright, offer ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the nose is compositionally similar to the Petit Chablis though at the same time more elegant and more complex. There is impressive volume and richness to the seductively textured middle weight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the sappy, balanced and solidly persistent finish. This too should drink well young." (10/2015) 89-91 points Vinous: "Pure, bright yellow. Aromas of crushed rock and ginger. Sweet, ripe and satisfying, offering considerable early appeal to its stone fruit and spice flavors. Much more tender than the Petit Chablis and totally different ...Read More »

2011 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "Forest" (Pre-Arrival)

93 points John Gilman: "The 2011 La Forest from Vincent Dauvissat is a lovely bottle, and as I was tasting the wine fairly soon after the mise, I may well be underestimating the wine a tad. The deep and utterly classic nose wafts from the glass in a blend of green apple, pear, flinty minerality, plenty of beeswax, white flowers and a dollop of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and complex, with excellent mid-palate depth, lovely transparency and bounce, crisp acids and excellent focus and grip on the long and beautifully balanced finish. Just a lovely, l ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Grand Chablis "Vaudesir"

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir, matured in 35% used barrel, has a very composed bouquet with scents of yellow plum, citrus peel, flint and smoke that seem to gain intensity in the glass. This is a very "involving" bouquet that you just want to keep inhaling. The palate is taut on the entry, sporting a fine line of acidity. It is slightly resinous in style with notes of dried honey, white pepper, fennel and a powerful, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. There is a lot going on in this multifaceted Vaudésir, a Chablis that is riveting even a ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Laurent Tribut Chablis

88-90 points Vinous: "Aromas of lemon, stone and menthol suggest an austere wine. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, displaying a brisk citrus edge and saline minerality. A very good, classic village wine in the making.(ST)" (8/2017) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A ripe and appealingly layered nose brings together notes of pear, apple, lemon zest and just enough Chablis typicity to be convincing. The rich, succulent and seductively textured medium weight flavors exude a hint of minerality on the clean, dry and solidly persistent finish. This is a quality 2016 Chablis villages that should drink well young. ...Read More »

VN 88 - 90

2016 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Petite Chablis (Pre-Arrival)

90 points John Gilman: "With fully two-thirds of a normal crop wiped out here by the frosts on April 27th, it is not too surprising that the resulting wine is truly exceptional in quality. This is not a wine that is overly concentrated, as is the case with some severely frosted whites in 2016, but a wine of great precision, depth of fruit and mineral drive. The bouquet is superb, offering up scents of pear, apple, chalky minerality, beeswax and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, long and zesty, with a rock solid core, lovely focus and grip ...Read More »
