Christian Moreau Chablis Les Clos 2015
Wine EnthusiastWidely regarded as the most majestic of the Chablis Grand Crus, Les Clos has produced a properly impressive and richly dense wine. It has the crispness of the vintage, tight minerality and ripe fruit flavors that contrast apricot and citrus. This is a serious, structured wine ready for aging. Drink from 2022.
Wine SpectatorThis is singing today, offering peach, apple, stone and honey aromas and flavors. The brilliant structure keeps the elements delineated. The finish echoes mineral and lemon notes. Best from 2018 through 2025.
VinousLight-medium yellow. Pineapple, wet stone and a suggestion of flinty silex on the nose. Dry, classic and backward but comes across as riper than the Valmur even though these grapes were picked very early, on September 3 and 4. The tightly coiled citrus fruit, wild herb and crushed stone flavors will need time in bottle to unwind and gain in texture. This extract-rich grand cru finishes with rising length and powerful citric cut, with some unabsorbed CO2 giving it a slight dry edge.
BurghoundA reserved and ripe nose features white orchard fruit and floral notes set off by deft touches of wood and citrus peel. There is excellent richness to the overtly powerful and concentrated medium plus weight flavors that possess ample amounts of dry extract that confer a textured feel to the impressively intense and mouth coating finish. This is a very good 2015 that should repay mid-term cellaring.90-93
