Chablis 2007

Domaine Christian Moreau Pere & Fils

The versatile, affordable, village Chablis from Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils is bright and crisp, with the classic, taut structure and refreshing minerality that define traditional Chablis. This is a Moreau classic!

Vinification: The winemaking techniques strive to honor the high quality of the terroir, vines and grapes, bringing out the very best in every harvest.
All equipment, from the trailers used to transport the grape harvest to the vats themselves, has been carefully selected so that each parcel of land can be worked separately. All harvesting is done exclusively by hand from the Petit Chablis up to the Grands Crus.

Additional Information

"(100% stainless). A ripe and notably complex nose features ripe green fruit, oyster shell, algae and a saline component that is also picked up by the pure, intense and energetic flavors with cuts-like-a-knife precision on the minerally finish that boasts plenty of underlying tension. Terrific quality at this level and this too is recommended." 89 points -Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct. 2008

    The generic Moreau 2007 Chablis as usual for this cuvee is 60% from the vineyards of a single grower behind Vaulorent, with the rest coming from Pargues. In short, if one believes in location, you cant get much better in AOC Chablis. Furthermore, unusually, the fruit is all hand-harvested. Lime, apricot, mint, and lily-of-the-valley aromas lead into a satisfyingly juicy, zesty, peppery palate and a bright, pointed, chalk-tinged finish. This is indeed an excellent exemplar of its vintage and appellation and should remain so for 2-3 years.

    Fresh and lemony, offering Granny Smith apple and mineral notes. Balanced on a lean frame, with a mouthwatering finish.

    Classy if subdued aromas of citrus and stone. Juicy and nicely delineated, with good spicy lift to the flavors of lemon and orange zest. A very fresh and energetic village wine.

    Moreau, who comes from a longtime Chablis-producing family, is known for steely, focused wines. This intro-level bottling is green gold-gold in color and has the flavor of tart green apples, along with a hint of earthiness.

    Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of yellow fruits, vanilla, truffle and spearmint, plus a whiff of orange zest. Juicy, firm and dry, with strong acids framing the citrus, mineral and musky spice flavors. This pure, brisk village wine reminded me in style of a 2004. Classic finishing flavors of lemon and minerals.
