DESCRIPTION

By Allen Meadows Oct-12, Issue #48, 10/1/2012, (link) 92-94 points
(Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils Chablis - Clos des Hospices Grand Cru White) There is a bit more wood in evidence compared to the "regular" Les Clos cuvée though not so much that it restrains one's ability to appreciate the otherwise fresh, cool and classic Chablis-suffused nose. There is excellent concentration to the powerful and extract-rich big-bodied flavors that possess an almost chewy texture before terminating in a gorgeously long, dry and well-balanced finish. This will also require 6 to 8 years to be at its best. (Drink starting 2017)

(Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils Chablis Clos des Hospices) (entirely in tank now): Bright, pale, green-tinged yellow. Highly aromatic nose offers scents of white peach, flowers, chlorophyll, spices and herbs. Fat, rich, supple and sweet; much more silky and less austere than the "regular" Clos. Lovely impression of sucrosite . Finishes with enticing lingering sweetness and a firm mineral edge. This wine become more integrated even with ten minutes in the glass; it should offer considerable near-term appeal and age well. For his part, Fabien Moreau finds it a bit "excessive" today and believes it will benefit from its remaining months of elevage .
