Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate) says of this wine, "Moreau’s 2011 Chablis is showing some tightness because of its recent bottling, two weeks before this tasting, but it appears to have more freshness and verve than the 2010. Citrus and white floral notes give the 2011 much of its vibrancy and focus. Anticipated maturity: 2012."
“All Time Top 10 Burgundy Domaines”, says Clive Coates MW. (An amazing feat – as their first vintage was 2002)!
Moreau farms 6 hectares of Chablis Grand Cru and 5 hectares of Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon. These are wonderfully sited vineyards which for generations have been the personal property of the Moreau family. (The family now have no connection or contract with the large and respected négociant of the same name).
Christian, a larger than life personality, together with his highly qualified oenologue son Fabien are making spectacular handcrafted Chablis. All of their grapes are hand picked from vines which average 40-60 years old. Grand Cru Vaudesir is mainly tank fermented and sees 10% new oak. Grand Cru Les Clos is 30% barrel-fermented, 1er Cru Vaillons and Grand Cru Valmur are 40% barrel-fermented.
They are brilliant, bracing, classic, minerally Chablis. Vintage 2010 was the first year the Domaine is certified biodynamic.
