Part of the famed Moreau family in Chablis, Louis Moreau is part of this great lineage of Chablis winemakers. These are classic Chablis wines that are built on mineral definition rather than trying for opulent fruit. It is one of the more traditional styles that has remained a constant in Chablis, and while others might look to experiment, Louis Moreau sticks to his guns. Les Clos is an elusive wine that can be extraordinary when its open and vines were planted in 1958 and 1968. Hand-harvested and sorted, this is vinified in tank with indigenous years and sees no oak, aging on the fine lees for 18 months before bottling. It's a pure and transparent style only being in the tank and has been the norm since the 2013 vintage. Incredible mineral expression with cool citrus, 2017 was an excellent vintage for this cuvee and should continue to develop seamlessly for years to come.
Wine Enthusiast (Anne Krebiehl MW) 97 points! "Hints of cool chalk and bright lemon show on this wine's shy but fresh nose. A whisper of smoke accompanies the stony, wet-chalk notes. Chalkiness is even more pronounced on the palate, pervading texture and body, but also referencing lemon zestiness and riper tangerine. Gorgeously fresh now, this alluring wine is certain to evolve. Drink by 2040."
