In This Vintage, Stock Up More Than Usual!
"There are whispers that Burgundy 2018 is one of the greatest ever vintages." Decanter, Tim Atkins
In any vintage, there is something near and dear to me about this wine. After 15 years of enjoyment and fantastic consistency, this Chablis has yet to be replaced as my go-to white. That's why I always have a few bottles chilled in my refrigerator regardless of the season.
Over the years, a few producers have come close (see our recent Patric Piuze's 2018 Petit Chablis feature), but, we have yet to find a finer village Chablis that surpasses this quality.
Notes of lemon, apple, smoke, green fruit, oyster shells, and flint, carry through to a pure and racy finish. The palate is distinct with crushed-stone and vibrant minerality. Though the wine sees no oak, Moreau Chablis has a richness and creaminess about it that leaves you begging for a second glass.
Why is Moreau's Chablis so sought after?
Simply put, Moreau is the best of the best.
Christian Moreau is the largest holder of Grand Cru property in Chablis. The soil is rich with clay and fossilized shells. The wine is a chameleon. You can dress it up with a rich piece of fish, like grilled salmon, or dress it down with a crisp salad.
No wonder Wine Spectator has singled out Domaine Christian Moreau as "one of the best sources of Chablis in the region."
We even have a few cases of Moreau's Les Clos Chablis, the most coveted of the Grand Crus.
Don't be afraid to enjoy these wines on the warmer side of cold as great whites showcase well when served slightly warmer.
