2018 was a wild ride for Chablis producers. It was warm (no surprise there), the crop was bountiful, and – in the end – the quality was bang-on, even if the wines are more precocious than classic. And it’s a vintage that suits the quirky, texture-seeking style of Moreau-Naudet.

“These are not your brittle, simple ‘Chablis-by-numbers’ wines where acidity is often confused as minerality. Here, the style is borne by low yields and ripe fruit and that crunchy, citric, acid tang of generic Chablis finds itself replaced by an intense, mineral freshness interwoven through pulpy and sexy fruit. We recognise the personality of these wines. We see it in all of the finest, artisanal Burgundy. This makes sense – Moreau’s methods–which include ploughing, organic viticulture, hand harvesting, whole berry pressing, natural yeast fermentation, natural settling and long, slow élevage in large oak–sound identical to the best growers of the Côte de Beaune. Low sulphur is another key to understanding the wines. It’s all very un-Chablis.“

“This is one of Chablis’s finest estates … Textural but tangy, the wines do much to prove that ripe grapes and a faithful and differentiated expression of Chablis’s diverse terroirs is possible … this is a domaine that continues to thrive and produces very fine wines.”  William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
