Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos is a fatter, ampler wine than Moreau's regular Les Clos, revealing notes of candied peel, lemon oil and wheat toast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, succulent and dramatic, with more immediate, up-front impact, though I suspect over the long haul the regular bottling may prove superior.Author: William KelleyIssue: 238
Vinous | Rating: 95The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Clos des Hospices Grand Cru has a very well defined bouquet, but a little tight and backward at the moment, gradually unfurling to reveal blood orange, honeysuckle and a slightly resinous tincture. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, and cohesive with a finish that surfeits with tension and sense of energy. This is a complex, quite cerebral but delicious Les Clos.Drink Dates: 2020 - 2038Author: Neal MartinIssue: Aug 2018
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
