2010 Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru les Clos Clos des Hospices $105

Aromatic with a little wild yeast note on top of floral and soil-driven aromas that frame a little dried fruit base note. In the mouth, this is quite nearly silky, with a lovely innate richness that shows off ripe and rather bold fruit, citrus-driven with hints of Asian pear and perhaps some white peach. There is plenty of acidity here, but today it is buffered by rather rich fruit. The finish is fabulous, tight and pure, stoney and mineral-laden with a light smoky top note. This is very young, with rich fruit affording a lovely texture that manages to be both soft and firm, but the best days are yet to come. 93 points

  • Léchet and Vaillon without Daniel-Etienne Defaix wines... Too bad.
