Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An airy and agreeably pure nose combines notes of petrol, iodine and white and yellow-fleshed fruit compote. The succulent but punchy middle weight flavors exhibit both good intensity and reasonably good detail on the overtly saline, clean, linear and appealingly dry finish. Lovely stuff that is worth your attention. *Outstanding* Drink 2022+ Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chablis Villages offers up classic aromas of green apples, spring flowers and citrus zest. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, tangy and open-knit, without immense depth or concentration, with a charming, accessible profile. Fabien Moreau presides over this 11.5-hectare domaine--including fully six hectares of grand cru--that has been certified organic since 2010. The Chablis AOC is the only cuvée where the domaine's holdings are supplemented by some purchased grapes. Hand harvesting followed by fermentation and élevage on the lees in a mixture of stainless steel, used barrels and new barrels is the order of the day here, with some of the higher appellations seeing up to 10% new oak. Concentrated and keenly balanced, it's an impressive range; but for those that are averse to the flavors and aromas of new oak in Chablis--the present writer included--a few years' bottle age is essential to allow the wines to digest their wood component. (WK) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chablis is soft, pretty and understated, with lovely floral and citrus character. Open-knit and quite expressive, Moreau's village-level Chablis will drink well right out of the gate. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An opulent style of Chablis, revealing peach, melon and apple fruit. Reveals good cut, leaving a cleansing feel on the finish. Drink now. (BS, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Blended but not for bottling until September. Clear pale fine trenchant Chablis with medium plus depth. Good weight here. Entirely from Pargues, which was completely hailed in ‘16, but in 2017 made 34 hl/ha. Tasted: May 2018."
