Wine Spectator Notes : Rich, with fine cut framing the apple, lemon and melon flavors. A chalky intensity leaves a puckering sensation, but the mineral element lingers. Give this time to settle down. Best from 2016 through 2024.

Robert Parker Notes : Bottled a few weeks before my June tasting, the generic Moreau 2012 Chablis displays tart-edged but succulent apple, white peach and white currant wreathed in wintergreen, its tartness harnessed to juicy refreshment and displaying an unmistakable if subtle expression of salt, stone and iodine characteristic of its genre. The sense of lift – even at nearly 13% alcohol, a figure typical for the Moreaus’ vintage collection, but on the high side for wines of this vintage – delightfully complements the cooling, downright thirst-quenching character of this fine value and remarkably eloquent exemplar of its modest appellation. Enjoy through 2015.

Tasting Notes : Bright pale yellow colour. Ripe aromas and flavours of mirabelle, anise, pungent herbs and pepper, plus a suggestion of exotic fruits and spices. Juicy, ripe and concentrated, boasting an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity. Finishes with noteworthy persistence. Should make an excellent village wine.
