Terroir: Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils owns a total of 7.5 acres of this most famous of the Grand Crus of Chablis, more than any other producer in the region. Their primary parcel sits on the high portion of the hillside with a direct southeast exposure. With the steep grade, drainage of the kimmeridgien soils is quick leading to low yields of the densely planted vines.
Vinification: A sizable 40% of the final blend is aged in oak cask, although only a small percentage is new barrels. The oak contact is unobtrusive and is a testament to the sheer power of this Grand Cru.
Pale gold in colour, this commanding Chablis Grand Cru from the great site of Les Clos is everything Chablis-lovers could want. The site is so good, indeed, that its wines often take some time to evolve both aromatically and on the palate, but the supple, summer-meadow warmth of the aromas of this wine and its width and amplitude in the mouth suggests it has already set out satisfyingly down the evolutionary track. The balance with the wine's inherently stony tension, though, is impressively achieved, too: a complete yet approachable Les Clos. - Decanter Magazine
The white peaches and nectarines are underpinned by lemons and yellow grapefruit on the nose. The palate has a very rich and attractive feel with a fleshy and layered ascent to the long, full and fluid finish. The fruit holds and holds. The minerals come eventually. This is exceptional.
