Domaine Louis Moreau

Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2017

Ron R

As with previous tastings, the nose comes across as compressed. Palate displays butterscotch, caramel and unusually for this producer. a hint of wet paper. Mid palate is dense and weighty with moderate sweetness and acidity. Nice citrus fruit profile with a hint of pears. Good, but I consider this bottle to be an outlier. — 2 months ago

3-D Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2018

Fantastic chardonnay from Greg Brewer that is only going to get better and better with more time in the bottle. A perfect match for a spectacular day in Eagle Harbor on Lake Superior…and even better to celebrate Vanessa’s paper being accepted for publication today! 🥳 — 3 years ago

Tsapournakos Cabernet Franc 2017

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Tsapournakis is, apparently, Cabernet Franc (or some clone of it) that has been grown in Velvento for a long time. Not surprisingly, this had Right Bank Bordeaux sensibilities. There was a mix of red and dark fruits, purple flowers, organic earth, tobacco and some baking spices. There was perhaps just a touch of Brett too. The structure was firm, in the medium+ category and the finish was long. This was lovely with baked lamb in paper. — 10 months ago

Morstein Großes Gewächs Riesling 2012

Mid Lemon in colour. A 10 year old GG from the Rheinhessen - not a hint of TDN (Kerosene/Petrol notes in aged Riesling). Just been reading a research paper on TDN from the Australian Wine Research Institute. Definitely sunshine to the extent of sunburnt grapes is a big factor. Also a fact I wasn’t aware of that cork allows TDN to release more than with a screw cap. This GG had a cork, although personally I would prefer a screw cap particularly with a Riesling. This Wittmann showed peach and mineral - also white flowers ( Daisies, Barb thought). Enough acid to keep things lively and delicious - some herbs. Enough fruit richness and sweetness to almost convince you that it is off dry but it is actually 13% ABV. An excellent dry German Riesling worthy of the Grosses Gewachs classification. A very high score of 19/20 from Michael Schmidt. — 2 years ago
