Moreau-Naudet

Today we offer Moreau-Naudet’s 2018s, from the Vieilles Vignes up to the Grand Cru release. Across the board, 2018 was clearly a fleshier year than 2017, yet these wines remain true to Chablis. Moreau’s 2018s are deep and layered, with juicy freshness and excellent tension through the spine. Importantly—and not a given in 2018—the personality of each vineyard is finely etched throughout the wine. In sum, these 2018s are absolutely delicious—terrific, artisanal white Burgundy for a very fair price. Virginie Moreau has kept up the standards set by her late husband Stéphane, and has made plenty of progress. The vineyards are now managed strictly organically, and Virginie has surrounded herself with a skilful team who share her vision. Frustratingly, her two first vintages in charge were frost-affected, but 2018 was third time lucky—not only was the quality superb, the yields were finally reasonable. Last year also saw Moreau-Naudet promoted to two stars in La Revue du Vin de France—only Raveneau and Dauvissat rate higher in the region. This is a credit to both the legacy of Stéphane Moreau but also to the Domaine’s continued evolution under Virginie Moreau.
