Chablis Les Clos Christian Moreau 2016 (750ML)
91, William Kelley, Robert Parker Wine Advocate "The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos reveals aromas of lemon oil, waxy citrus rind, nutmeg and subtle new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, textural and chalky, with good depth and chewy extract, but without the completeness and// dimension of a great vintage. It's a Clos that will drink well with just a year or two of bottle age." 8/18
92, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2016 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru has a tightly wound bouquet with crushed stone, linseed oil and light beeswax aromas, the latter becoming more and more pronounced with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fresh and taut with a grippy, saline finish that suggests it will require two or three years to find its complete harmony." 8/18 91-94, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Slightly hazy medium yellow. Totally different from the preceding wines, showing pronounced notes of lime, crushed rock and anise. A step up in intensity and pitch too, showing energetic, sappy flavors of white peach, salty stony minerality and white pepper. This very pure wine boasts refined tannins and terrific finishing energy." 8/17
96, James Suckling: "This has an array of fruits from citrus to white and yellow peaches. More tropical mangoes and papaya with wet stony mineral nuances follow afterwards. The palate's very expansive and expressive, but it is pinned together with a core of bright fine acidity and a very concentrated rich serving of fruit flesh. Delicious now, but it will age well beyond 2025." 8/18
91, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Peach, yellow plum and melon aromas and flavors mark this round, vibrant white. Harmonious, lingering with tangy plum skin and lime notes. Drink now through 2024. 2,000 cases made." 8/18
93 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Once again discreet wood influence serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the well-layered aromas of rose petal, petrol, mineral reduction, dried apricot and white peach. The sleek and beautifully refined medium weight plus flavors exhibit more minerality and almost as much power that really comes up on the balanced, focused and strikingly long finish. This exceptionally rich and citrusy effort is a very impressive 2016." 10/18
95, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: "This is a rich wine, even from the normally austere Les Clos vineyard. Minerality is here, but it is surrounded by sumptuous ripe white fruits that have intense youthful acidity. It is a great wine that needs to age further, so drink from 2021."
