93 POINTS | Bob Campbell MW "Good value at this price. (reviewed at $24.99)
We're always excited to try new wines that have been imported by Steve Bennett MW at Mucho Gusto and his new offerings from the Moreau and Fils range were an immediate winner in our books. Moreau and Fils have been producing wine since 1814 and have become a prestigious house in that time that is famed for their Chablis range. Their Les Coches range focuses on the careful selection, ageing and blending of fruit to create elegant wines.
This 2020 Languedoc Chardonnay is clean and vibrant with delicate notes in the zingy citrus and stonefruit spectrum. Gentle acidity and a touch of minerality add interest and lead to a dry finish on a palate that has some subtle, underlying creaminess and some lightly textural layers. We loved it for its freshness and vivacity and it's easy to see the Chablis references here. Excellent value at $19.99 on case buys.
Bob Campbell MW writes "Attractive chardonnay from the Languedoc in southern France. It is supple but has weight and is gently tangy without being too acidic. Roasted nut, citrus, grapefruit, and a suggestion of wild flowers. Good value at this price."
