2017 Domaine Christian Moreau "Les Clos - Clos des Hospices" Chablis Grand Cru

SKU #1443818 95 points James Suckling

 This is stunning. A richer and more expressive and more exuberant nose than the regular Les Clos bottling. A complete array of yellow stone fruit and citrus fruit on show here. The palate has a very fleshy and very smooth, white-nectarine and white-peach core. Long, sleek and elegant.  (8/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 As usual, the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos is richer and broader than the domaine's regular Les Clos, revealing a lavish bouquet of peaches, honeycomb, yellow orchard fruit, fresh pastry and white flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, though balanced by lively acids and concluding with a penetrating finish. The choice between the two is more a matter of taste than of quality.

94 points Vinous

 The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Clos des Hospice Grand Cru shows a richer, more powerful expression of this Grand Cru than the straight Les Clos, with greater depth and a more tropical profile. Pineapple, candied orange zest, hazelnut and chamomile add to the wine's flamboyant-leaning feel. (AG)  (1/2020)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Here the wood regimen is more evident and like the Blanchot, includes notes of vanilla on the floral, spice, wet stone and overtly ripe pear and white peach scents. There is bit more mid-palate concentration to the big-bodied and powerful flavors that also coat the palate on the markedly saline finish that is not quite as complex, at least not today. Still, this too is quite promising plus it should drink well both young and with up to a decade of cellaring.  (10/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

 A lean, racy version, featuring lemon, apple, vanilla and lanolin flavors. Fleshes out on the palate, yet remains defined by vivid acidity. Displays fine length, echoing lemon and spice notes. Best from 2020 through 2027. (BS)  (12/2019)
