Chablis 2015

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

The 2015 Chablis is a ripe, yet bone dry Chardonnay with crisp green apple, mineral and a touch of saline.

    From vineyards on the cooler south bank of the Serein, this wine is crisp and tightly coiled despite the warmth of the 2015 vintage. It's built on a backbone of sturdy minerality, fleshed out with crisp, citrus fruit, and will be ready to drink from late 2017.

    This ripe version is round and full of apple and peach flavors, yet with Chablis' telltale stony seashore hint, ending with a moderately long finish. Drink now through 2020.

    For good-value chardonnays from Burgundy, look no further than village Chablis like this bottling. Made by a great father-and-son team, it has the regions trademark lightness, elegance, and minerality, but also the round richness of a warm vintage.

    This 12.5 ha domaine is directed by Christian Moreau and his son Fabien, who describe the 2015 vintage as "one that is marked by the super-hot and dry summer. June, July and August were all very warm and while there was a bit of rain in August, June and July had almost none. Then the evening of the 31st of August brought hail but also an incredible 85 mm of rain which according to the weather service is a record for one day! The hail only lasted for 5 minutes but the stones were the size of cherries and thus they did a lot of damage in our vineyards of Les Clos and Blanchot. We also suffered a huge amount of erosion that created a lot of havoc as well. We began picking on the 3rd of September and bought in ripe fruit with potential alcohols of between 12.3 and 13.3% with post-malo pHs of around 3.25. Quantities were of course variable and in the hailed vineyards we lost around 40% relative to a normal crop. As to the wines, 2015 produced notably ripe and rich Chablis and even though the total acidities aren't especially high, the good pHs help maintain good balance."
    Here as well the sulfur presently dominates the nose. Otherwise there is a bit more volume to the energetic and attractively textured flavors that offer reasonably good persistence on the moderately dry if not especially complex finale.

    Metallic lemon-lime nose. Juicy, spicy and brisk, with classic lemon and white pepper flavors; nothing exotic about this 2015. Nicely penetrating village wine with sneaky length. Start drinking this wine at the end of the year, suggests Christian Moreau.

    (bottled two weeks prior to my early-June visit): Metallic lemon-lime nose. Juicy, spicy and brisk, with classic lemon and white pepper flavors; nothing exotic about this 2015. Nicely penetrating village wine with sneaky length. Start drinking this wine at the end of the year, suggests Christian Moreau.
