"A gorgeous, beguiling wine... "
2017 Moreau-Naudet Chablis 1er Cru Forêts

Posted by Ian McFadden

Moreau-Naudet is producing some of the most exciting wines coming out of Chablis. In 2017, they reached a high-water mark.

Their 2017s represent a break out vintage for one of Chablis' top talents. They nailed the vintage.

Last week, we offered the mindblowing Vaillons. Today, we're excited to up the stakes with their 2017 Forêts for $49.95 per bottle.

The signature of the domaine is a captivating, deeply textural and racy style. Tasting them for the first time, you immediately stop and take notice.

Forêts is one of the most sought-after 1er Crus in Chablis, known for its complexity, finesse, and aging potential. Moreau’s parcel is right next to Dauvissat’s, and along with Dauvissat, Moreau-Naudet’s is one of my favorite examples of the site.

In 2017, the Forêts is so good that it comes across as a jolt of discovery. Everything seems perfectly harmonious and rigorously precise. Antonio Galloni's tasting note really nails the wine: " The interplay of richness and energy gives the Forets myriad dimensions of complexity that will start to emerge more fully with time in bottle."

This is an absolutely brilliant bottle of Chablis. As Galloni's note points out, it is poised to age really, really well. Thankfully, word is not out yet on Moreau-Naudet and the Forêts is an incredible value.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2017 Chablis Forets 1er Cru is a gorgeous, beguiling wine that captures all of the qualities that make the best 2017s so complete and alluring. In the glass, the Forets is powerful and deep, yet also retains terrific nuance. The interplay of richness and energy gives the Forets myriad dimensions of complexity that will start to emerge more fully with time in bottle. Readers can look forward to a Chablis with a very bright future."
