Overview of the Wine
Domaine Moreau-Naudet is now among the top estates for distinctly non-conformist Chablis. Taking cues from legendary producers like Raveneau and Dauvissat, Moreau-Naudet makes ripe but precisely shaped Chablis that combine minerality with deeply concentrated substance. The lean, austere wines that became the norm for this region are less a reflection of the region’s true terroir and more a side-effect of high yield, early picking and machine harvesting.

Moreau-Naudet does the opposite. They harvest later, by hand, and look for a perfect balance of ripeness and freshness when, especially with the recent warm vintages, no chaptalization is needed. This approach in the vineyard is complemented by fully biodynamic farming and meticulous attention in the cellar where they allow nature to do the heavy lifting.

Sadly, winemaker Stephane Moreau suffered an untimely and tragic death in August 2016. When he passed unexpectedly it sent a shock through Burgundy and the wine world beyond. But since then Stephane’s wife, Virginie Moreau-Naudet, has carried on her late husband’s philosophy and style with resounding success. Tasting these wines today we feel inspired and grateful for her and her family’s perseverance.

Tasting Notes
Full organic farming with biodynamic principles, natural yeast ferments, and harvested 100% by hand–an anomaly in the mainly conventionally-farmed area. Unmistakably Chablis.

Crushed rocks and oyster shells, hints of cream and toasty brioche, bright citrus. A slightly richer, rounder style of Chablis that is delicious now but can also be cellared for several more years.
