2016 Domaine Christian Moreau "Les Clos" Chablis Grand Cru

SKU #1385329 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has an array of fruits from citrus to white and yellow peaches. More tropical mangoes and papaya with wet stony mineral nuances follow afterwards. The palate’s very expansive and expressive, but it is pinned together with a core of bright fine acidity and a very concentrated rich serving of fruit flesh. Delicious now, but it will age well beyond 2025. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a rich wine, even from the normally austere Les Clos vineyard. Minerality is here, but it is surrounded by sumptuous ripe white fruits that have intense youthful acidity. It is a great wine that needs to age further, so drink from 2021. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Once again discreet wood influence serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the well-layered aromas of rose petal, petrol, mineral reduction, dried apricot and white peach. The sleek and beautifully refined medium weight plus flavors exhibit more minerality and almost as much power that really comes up on the balanced, focused and strikingly long finish. This exceptionally rich and citrusy effort is a very impressive 2016. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru has a tightly wound bouquet with crushed stone, linseed oil and light beeswax aromas, the latter becoming more and more pronounced with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and taut with a grippy, saline finish that suggests it will require two or three years to find its complete harmony. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Deliciously opulent with bright yellow plum aromas and fresh peach and apricot fruit held aloft by fabulous mineral and salty lime backbone. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos reveals aromas of lemon oil, waxy citrus rind, nutmeg and subtle new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, textural and chalky, with good depth and chewy extract, but without the completeness and dimension of a great vintage. It's a Clos that will drink well with just a year or two of bottle age. (WK) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Peach, yellow plum and melon aromas and flavors mark this round, vibrant white. Harmonious, lingering with tangy plum skin and lime notes. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

K&L Notes

94 points Tim Atkin, MW: "Unusually, I prefer this to the more expensive Clos des Hospices bottling in 2016. It’s quite a broad, powerful style - you could easily mistake it for a Meursault - but there’s enough acidity to balance the rich, leesy, spicy palate. An unusual style of Les Clos with just a whiff of iodine bringing you back to Chablis. 2019-24." (1/2018)
