2018 Moreau-Naudet Chablis Les Pargues Vieilles Vignes

Les Pargues is a Chablis lieu-dit situated on a ridge between Montmains and Vosgros. It has the same exposure as the 1er Crus of Vaillons and Montmains, so it's a very handy site. The story goes that this site was originally classified as a 1er Cru level vineyard (pre-AOC), before being largely abandoned during the war (when there was a labour shortage). Regardless of this story, locals rightly speak very highly of this site. The vines in Moreau's tiny parcel average 50-plus years old and 15-25 hl/ha is a normal yield.

In 2018 the surprise is a racy, crunchy and classic personality. I get none of the exotic notes mentioned by Galloni (which I assume were an early showing of this wine)--this is now all lemon pith and sherbetty tang. It's actually tightly wound, with a long and racy close. This cuvée was the first to see a measure of neutral wood (10%) and was bottled separately, labelled as Vieilles Vignes on the back and Les Pargues on the front.
