    A quarry-like evocation of chalk dust, piquancy of lemon peel, and musky scents of narcissus render the nose of the Moreau 2011 Chablis Blanchots unmistakably as well as strikingly of its neighborhood. Subtly creamy yet engagingly juicy in a manner less tart or frisky than some other wines in its collection, this finishes with invigorating and mouthwatering persistence of white currant, lemon, and musky liquid florality.

    The 2011 Chablis Blanchot is another deep, resonant wine. Almonds, light, floral-infused honey, spice, vanillin, smoke, anise and yellow stone fruits are all very much alive in the glass. A rich, expansive finish rounds things out in style. The Blanchot is the smallest production wine at Moreau, and is aged entirely in oak.

    Bright yellow. Smoky oak, spices and vanilla on the nose. Broad and nicely balanced, with the obvious oak element nonetheless nicely integrated.

    "Here the wood is relatively generous though not completely dominant as it still allows the floral, stone, pear and hints of mineral reduction to be appreciated. There is fine richness to the bold and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess relatively good power before terminating in a long, dry and highly persistent finish."
