Christian Moreau Chablis Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos Grand Cru 2005

A Moreau family exclusivity from with-in the Grand cru Les Clos. This small plot of Grand cru was purchased from the Hospice in Chablis in 1904. From vines aged 25 years old. “Powerful but reticent aromas of citrus peel and crushed stone. Distinctly fatter and sweeter but quite stony in the mouth, then dry on the back, even austere. This seems sweet, notes Christian Moreau, but it's actually very low in residual sugar. Serious, backward wine, finishing stony and quite dry. I'd give this at least five years. The Clos des Hospices, located low on the hill and therefore featuring a bit more humidity, normally does best in dry years like 2003 and 2005, notes Moreau.” 92-94 Steve Tanzer Nov/Dec 2006
