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.

2016 Domaine de Biéville (Louis Moreau) Chablis Top Pick!
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 »

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 1er Cru "Vaillons"

97 points Decanter: "Pure expression of mineral, flint, chalk, oyster shell, flowers and herbs. Creamy, well-structured and textured palate with pronounced cleansing acidity, power and energy, yet not without finesse. Bravo." (5/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a rich wine with a warm character. It comes from vines in the heart of Chablis, facing the Grand Cru vineyards on the opposite side of the river. It's full bodied and ripe, with plenty of acidity to partner its yellow fruit. Drink from 2019.

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 »

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 Gérard Tremblay Chablis Vieilles Vignes

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 »

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here there is better Chablis character and even a hint of mineral reduction to the green apple, citrus and tidal pool-scented nose. 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."

2014 Domaine Vocoret et Fils Chablis 1er Cru "Les Forets" Vieilles Vignes

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A discreet application of wood sets off slightly riper but still cool aromas of apple, pear and lavender along with oyster shell, iodine and seashore hints. There is more body to the richer and more concentrated flavors that remain light on their feet thanks to the firm but not aggressive acidity on the caressing and well-balanced finale. This is already drinking well but clearly has the stuffing to reward 4 to 6 years of cellar time. Lovely stuff." (8/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Pale, bright yellow.

2015 Domaine Laroche Chablis 1er Cru "Les Beauroys"

91 points Decanter: "A classic Chablis nose, lean, stony and lifted. The rich, firm palate has weight and power, quite imposing for a premier cru, with ample spice and vigour. 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. Being a Premier Cru, there is a fa... Read More »

2015 Domaine Samuel Billaud "Montée de Tonnerre" Chablis 1er Cru

It has a very refined bouquet with scents of white peach and a hint of nectarine developing alongside chalky aromas. The palate is very crisp on the entry with notes of Granny Smith apple, that white peach again and a touch of spice that lends tension and energy towards the finish; there is a dab of lemongrass that seems to fizz on the tip of the tongue after the wine has ...Read More »

(12/2017) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A discreet but not invisible touch of wood frames the slightly riper aromas of white orchard fruit, lemon and sea breeze. There is a bit more volume and richness to the generously proportioned yet intense flavors that possess adequate if not special depth and length. I wouldn't describe this as entirely classic but there is enough typicity to be at least persuasive." (11/2017) Vinous: "Palish ...Read More »

Fresh and refined, but also boasts lovely creamy depth and subtle sweetness in the middle palate. A step up in breadth and power from the regular Butteaux, this is a distinctly serious wine with a firm mineral underpinning. The soil here is heavy clay with big rocks (but not much calcaire), which Gicqueau-Michel says normally yields a more rustic style that needs time in bottle.(ST)" (8/2017) 90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is also relatively inexpr ...Read More »

Samuel Billaud commented he has found that this particular cuvée has become more saline and minerally in barrel. It has a very complex bouquet with scents of wet limestone, yellow plum and a touch of white peach.

This substantially-scaled effort offers very good depth and persistence in a package that could be approached young or held for a few years first." (10/2017) Vinous: "Healthy pale yellow.

This is really quite good and worth checking out." (10/2017) 91 points Vinous: "Exotic orange peel, sexy spices and a whiff of earth on the inviting nose.

It has a refined and pure bouquet with scents of flint, smoke and a touch of dandelion. This is sophisticated and entrancing. The palate is fresh on the entry with notes of tangerine, citrus peel and even hints of red cherry. It builds in the mouth and delivers a very harmonious, lightly spiced and persistent finish that attests to its potential. I admire the authority and ambition of this les Clos that clearly aims to be the pick of Droin's 2016s.( ...Read More »

Otherwise there is a lovely sense of purity to the intense, sleek and generous yet precise medium-bodied flavors that possess a succulent mouth feel, all wrapped in an impressively complex and lingering finish. Like the Bougros my rating assumes that the wood will ultimately be successfully integrated."

The bouquet has a nice touch of reserve to it out of the blocks, delivering scents of lemon, apple, chalky minerality, fruit blossoms, beeswax and just a touch of vanillin oak (this too is fifty percent barrel-fermented). On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and shows a fine girdle of acidity, with a rock solid core, fine focus and grip, excellent balance and a long, complex and very promising finish.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses" (95JG, 95VN, 94RP, 94ST, 93BH). Vinous: "Dauvissat's 2011 Chablis Preuses is a big step up from the 1er Crus. Preuses signatures are all over this utterly impeccable, gracious Chablis. Layers of cool, saline-infused mineral nuance give the 2011 much of its freshness and verve. Sweet floral notes meld into pears and white stone fruits in an impeccable wine that will offer years of rewarding drinking. (AG)" (08/2013)

2013 Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos - Clos des Hospices"

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "From a vineyard that once belonged to the charitable Hospices de Chablis, this is a superrich wine for a Chablis, powered both by acidity and by beautiful ripe fruits. It is bright and tight in character, although it is the richness and the density of the wine that shows most strongly. Drink this powerful wine from 2020."

2009 Domaine Drouhin-Vaudon Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos"

Steve Tanzer writes: "Pale yellow. Captivating aromas of powdered stone, apple, oyster shell and white flowers. Offers lovely depth of fruit and a deceptively light touch, with complicating notes of sexy brown spices, licorice and lime. Resounds and spreads out on the very long finish. Leaves perfumed notes of brown spices and spearmint behind in the empty glass."

2011 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos"
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos" (96ST, 94RP, 94VN, 93BH). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Bracing aromas of lemon, ginger, chalk and spices. At once dense and penetrating, with outstanding citric cut to the complex, slightly high-toned flavors of lemon zest, white pepper, minerals and subtle resiny spices. Here, too, the wine's intense chalky character gives it an impression of stronger acidity than the numbers would suggest. Boasts terrific fruit intensity, and the wonderfully precise finish goes on and on. A great showing today, and one of the superstars of the vintage. (ST)" (07/2013)
