We were not prepared for the blazing greatness of the 2017 Moreau-Naudet collection. That's saying a lot.
We have been beating the drum for Moreau-Naudet for the past five years. Still, the dazzling quality of the 2017s shocked us. This is a break out vintage that places them among the best of Chablis.
Their 2017 Vaillons leads the charge. We're happy to offer the 2017 Vaillons for $57.95 per bottle and $52.95 in 4-packs. This is the lowest price in the country.
Moreau-Naudet achieves a rare and almost magical balance between density and weightlessness. The wines are beautifully transparent, sensuously textured, and zippy. They are hard to deny.
The 2017 Vaillons takes this harmony and fine calibration to the extreme. It's a saturating wine with serious precision. You get tremendous depth married to a jagged saline minerality with citrus and floral inflected high notes.
Moreau-Naudet is producing some of the most exciting wines coming out of Chablis. The 2017 Vaillons drives home the profound level at which they are working. I'm very happy to have come across a second parcel of this wine and to be able to offer it to a wider audience.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru captures so much of what makes the Moreau-Naudet wines so compelling. Brisk and powerful, with tremendous aromatic nuance and depth, the Vaillons is a wonderfully complete wine that impresses for its exceptional balance. Lemon confit, honey and wild flowers abound, but it is the wine's precision and total sense of harmony that really elevate it in this range."
