THE REVIEW

You won't get another shot at this library release. This is an extremely limited offering by one of our favorite and most respected Chablis producers.
    Each year we feature Christian Moreau's village level Chablis - truly delicious! That said, you haven't lived until you have experienced aged Grand Cru Chablis by one of Burgundy's finest producers.
    Rarely do we have the opportunity to offer one of Moreau's Grand Crus because of their extreme demand from collectors and limited production. However, we were recently able to procure a small library release of his Grand Cru Vaudesir. With five years of bottle age, this beautiful Chardonnay boasts pure fruit, invigorating energy, and sheer splendor.
    "A subtle touch of brioche serves as a backdrop for the ripe, spicy and pure aromas of white peach, pear and lime that gives way to round, supple and intense big bodied flavors suffused with an almost aggressive minerality while finishing with an energetic and citrusy finale that delivers outstanding length. A striking and beautifully balanced effort." Burghound
    Whether you are a collector or just love great wine, you will enjoy this delicious Chardonnay. From oysters, lobster, fish to fowl, you can enjoy this exceptional find now through 2018. Don't be afraid to enjoy this wine on the warmer side of cold as great whites can stand up to the slightly warmer temperature.Read More »
