Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2005

Domaine Christian Moreau Pere & Fils

Terroir: The tiny plot of Grand Cru Valmur sits snuggly between Vaudésir to the north and Les Clos to the south. Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils owns a total of 3 acres of this famed terroir. The plot is densely planted (7000 vines per hectare) with vines averaging 50 years old.

Vinification: Up to 50% of the blend spends some time in oak, of which 90% are 2-3 year old barrels. Just 10% is new.

Additional Information

“Lemon cream, vanillin oak and hazelnut on the nose, with a hint of citrus peel. A step up in intensity over the foregoing wines, with very good structure and depth. This juicy wine shows a youthful austerity that's refreshing for the vintage. Aged half in tank and half in barrel (just 1 out of the 20 barriques was new).” 91 pts. -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Oct. 2006

    Shows peach and honey top notes, with apple and grass underneath. The structure dominates now, but theres finesse and fine length, so give this time to integrate. Best from 2010 through 2020.

    Jasmine nose. Fresh, forward, good balance for drinking now. Lovely balance of fruit and acidity.
