    "Distinctive aromas of vanilla and clove are at the forefront now, with flavors of lemon cream and apple. Supple in texture, showing excellent length. Needs time. Best from 2017 through 2024."

    "Fresh and ripe, this also has a strong steely character. Mineral and densely textured, its a powerful wine, showing ripe yellow fruit, spice from wood and considerable concentration. Moreau makes just three barrels of this wine. Drink from 2019."

    "Here the wood is a bit more dialed up and while it doesn't dominate the floral, pear, white peach and ocean water aromas it would be fair to say that it's not subtle. The delicious, intense and mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors also possess a beautiful mouth feel that also evidences a touch of wood on the markedly dry but again, not really austere finale."

    "The 2013 Chablis Grand Cru Les Blanchots has a very generous, beautifully defined floral bouquet with fresh mango and apricot scents infused with minerals. The palate is very well-balanced with great depth, well-judged acidity and gorgeous apricot and tangerine notes on the finish. This is very Burgundian and is very impressive. Drink 2016-2028."

    "Tangerine, honey, mint, wild flowers and sage grace the palate in the 2013 Chablis Blanchot. Because of the tiny production this year, the Blanchots is done entirely in oak, which gives the wine much of its textural volume and creamy, resonant personality. This is an especially sweet, honeyed, extroverted Chablis, with hints of botrytis-inflected richness on the oily finish. "
