"Sleek and beautiful... this is a really impressive 2016." Burghound

Extremely Limited!

There is nothing like it. You haven't lived until you have experienced a Grand Cru Chablis by one of Burgundy's finest producers.

Fruit, texture, finesse, minerality - the list goes on. With so much demand and so little produced, rarely do we have an opportunity to offer one of Moreau's Grand Crus.

Domaine Christian Moreau is the largest holder of Grand Cru vineyards in Chablis. With a mere 7.5 acres, DCM is the envy of the region. Les Clos, its most famous of the Grand Crus, sits high on a steeply graded hillside with low yields.

No parcel in Chablis reproduces Chardonnay like Les Clos. Here is why this Grand Cru beauty is worth every penny:

White peach, lime, vibrant citrus, crushed seashells, chalk, young mango and a dash of nutty oak. Pure fruit, invigorating energy, and sheer splendor. This wine is striking, beautifully balanced, and long on the finish.

No wonder Decanter apply awarded this wine the title "White Burgundy Trophy."

Whether you are a collector or just love great wine, you will enjoy this delicious Chardonnay. From oysters, lobster, fish to fowl, you can enjoy this exceptional white now through 2030.

By the way, we recommend serving Les Clos on the warmer side of cold to enhance the wine's already impeccable fruit and acidity.

Enjoy!

Summary


DECANTER

97 / 100

"WHITE BURGUNDY TROPHY"

"Benchmark Grand Cru Chablis, with haunting aromas of kelp and seashore. Very fine and poised on the palate, with delicate oak, finely toasty notes, and a long, dry, chalky and mineral finish."

JAMES SUCKLING

96 / 100

"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."
