Domaine Christian Moreau Pere & Fils Chablis 2016
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.

Star winemaker Fabien Moreau makes a delicious Chablis, full of fruit, crisp with acidity and with a light, steely edge. This wine is all fruit, ripe lemon and green apple with a tight, fresh aftertaste. Drink from 2019.

A slightly riper if modestly less tropical nose reflects just enough Chablis character to be persuasive. The round, rich and more voluminous flavors possess good punch and concentration while delivering better depth and length on the somewhat drier finish.
