96 Point Chablis

2016 Moreau Clos de Hopsices Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos...$133.99 
A small portion of the Les Clos vineyard once belonged to the charitable Hospices de Chablis. Today, this one acre is vinified apart from this producers other Le Clos cuvee. This is a rich wine, hinting at wood aging with intense fruit and acidity. It has a rich texture, a great balance between acidity and the ripe white and citrus fruits. Drink this wine from 2022.
Rated 96/100 Wine Enthusiast
A more perfumed stony nose with acacia and dried yellow flowers, as well as a flinty edge. The palate has deeper fruit presence such as long peach curd. Flavors of lime butter roll out really smoothly. Majestic style here. Drink or hold.
