Chablis 2008

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.

    "Smoothly toasty wine, the wood element broadening the light apple fruit without overwhelming it. This attractive, basic Chablis has a fine, taut layer of acidity, grapefruit and apple juice crispness."

    "The generic Moreau 2008 Chablis issuing once again largely from advantageous locations behind Vaulorent and in Pargues offers generous, luscious white peach and honeydew melon along with the tartness and pungency of grapefruit, nettle, and white currant. Hints of peony drift through its subtly creamy, chalk-dusted yet persistently refreshing palate. This should continue to display subtle satisfaction over at least the next 3-4 years."

    Mild, appley nose. Very ripe and rich palate; juicy, with ample acidity and concentrated apple fruit. Well balanced, stylish and long.

    Musky ginger, quinine and white pepper notes lift the fruit aromas of lemon, melon, peach and passion fruit. Juicy and quite firm in the mouth, with excellent focus to the lime zest and mineral flavors. This bracing, dry, tangy wine also shows the plumpness and density of the year. An excellent village offering.

    (100% stainless). A classic aromatic profile of green fruit, oyster shell and saline hints slides into racy and pure middle weight flavors where more minerality resurfaces on the punchy and lingering finish. This is a lovely villages and definitely worth a look for both value and quality.
