2019 Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos - Clos des Hospices" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1555217 99 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This hyper-specific expression of the grand cru Les Clos focuses on a miniscule single plot purchased from the Hospices of Chablis in 1904. While rich and penetrating with sun-soaked Mirabelle and yellow-apple flavors, it’s catapulted by a streak of grapefruit acidity and reverberating oyster-shell crush. A landmark wine with dazzling fruit expression, it’s a bit nervous in youth still but should approach peak from 2024 and improve well through 2040. (AI) Inner quote mark (2/2022)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here the slightly riper nose reflects exotic fruit aromas that include notes of mango, passion fruit and white peach that are trimmed in notes of petrol, quinine and shellfish. There is even better density to the sappy dry extract-rich big-bodied flavors that flash good power if perhaps a bit less minerality on the wonderfully textured, long and well-balanced finale. This isn't quite as structured as the regular cuvée and should be approachable after only 4 to 5 years of cellaring. Inner quote mark (10/2021)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Chablis Les Clos Clos des Hospices, in some ways, has a more understated bouquet compared to the regular cuvée, refined and elegant but perhaps a little more precise. The palate is edgy and minerally on the entry thanks to a citric line of acidity. This is brimming with energy, yet dials everything down toward the finish, as if saving its energy so that it may age over the long term. Classy. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2021)

K&L Notes

91-95pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "All in barrel, just blended. One new in 11, will now stay in tank till January. Really pretty palest green yellow. Little waves of flavour, good grip at the back, 13.3, but tastes a touch more, ripe spicy fruit, touch less acidity. More yellow plum notes to the fruit profile and summer flowers. Tasted: July 2020."
