2014 Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos-Clos des Hospices"

SKU #1261765 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Cellar Selection* From vines inside the Les Clos Grand Cru purchased in 1904 from the Hospices de Chablis, this is a richly structured wine. It’s dense with layers of flavor and great aging potential. Wood and smoky flavors are still calming down to give a wine that will be impressive and long-lived. Drink from 2023. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A subtle application of wood serves as a backdrop to the slightly riper white orchard fruit aromas that also display plenty of classic Chablis elements. As is almost always the case there is more size, weight and mid-palate concentration thanks to the copious amount of dry extract that adds a sappy texture to the intensely saline and mineral-driven finale. This possesses better depth than the regular cuvée if perhaps not quite the overall persistence. Still, this too is brilliant. Inner quote mark (10/2016)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Apple and stone flavors give off a cool reserve in this minerally white. Rich and creamy, with the lively acidity boosting the intensity and driving the long aftertaste of lemon and stone. Best from 2018 through 2029. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2016)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Much more closed than the classic Chablis (as well as the 2015 Clos des Hospices) but smells deeper and richer. Fleshy and rather powerful on the palate, with citrus and stone fruit flavors intensified by soil-driven minerality. The extremely long, resounding finish shows a slightly tannic quality. This wine may take even longer to mature than the classic Clos. (The Moreaus also poured me a taste of their 2003 Clos des Hospices from magnum, an utterly distinctive wine with white truffle and olive tapenade aromas and flavors and a remarkable freshness for a hot-vintage wine bottled with just 2.8 grams of acidity. "The wines' tannins protected the 2003s against oxidation," noted Fabien Moreau.) 94+ (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2016)
