2009 Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
*Don't Miss* Moderate wood influence that should integrate quickly still allows the white flower, spiced pear and citrus-infused aromas to shine. The rich, full and serious flavors possess excellent concentration as well as ample amounts of the hallmark minerality on the detailed, energetic and explosive finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Chablis Les Clos is fabulous. This seamless wine caresses the palate from start to finish, with fine, silky tannins that support layers of seamless fruit. Round, sweet and harmonious, the 2009 Les Clos impresses for its fabulous sense of harmony and impeccable finish. Hints of jasmine and light floral honey inform the close. The Clos was aged 40% in oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Full lemon-yellow color. Rather cool aromas of dusty stone, lemon and ginger. Juicier and firmer in the mouth than the more massive Valmur, with a light dusting of minerals lifted by lovely floral and spice perfume. The tight, dry, slowly building finish features very good grip and considerable class.
Ripe and juicy, with orange, apricot and melon flavors on a creamy texture. On the soft side, yet not heavy or dull, with a long, citrus-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2019. 400 cases imported.
