"A combination of fresh lemon, fusil, crushed chalk and white truffle in the nose of the Moreau 2008 Chablis Les Clos puts me in mind a bit of 1996, with musky narcissus and peony adding seductive intrigue. But there is a silken texture and a succulent generosity of white peach to accompany the bright lemon and grapefruit that would not have been present in many 1996s. Indeed, this is munificent by the standards of its site, vintage, and compared with previous wines I have tasted from the Moreau domaine. But beyond all the animal, floral, and sweetly-fruited depth present (at under 13% alcohol, it should be noted), there is all the cut and clarity, and all the saturation of chalk, salt, and iodine that one could wish for under the rubric of “minerality.” Peach kernel and citrus rind add piquancy to an expansive and sustained finish. This will be worth following for at least ten or a dozen years; and here’s hoping it will still stand erect when the roll is called two decades from now."
