"Superb." Vinous

A Mere 10 Acres Of 1er Cru Chardonnay!

This Chablis is one of the most sought after 1er Crus in the industry.

By now you know we are fans of Moreau's village Chablis and feature it every release. We've never had an opportunity to feature Moreau's 1er Cru Vaillon until now.

Bottles, not cases, are available from time to time - this is one of those times!

Don't wait.

Add an outstanding 2017 vintage for white Burgundies and you have an amazing opportunity to enjoy some of the finest from Chablis.

Why is Moreau's Vaillon so sought after?

The soil is rich with clay and minerals from fossilized shells of pre-historic oysters. The mineral content of the soil carries through on the palate with a distinct crushed-stone quality. The wine showcases exotic white orchard fruit, great tension and a zesty finish. Perfectly balanced, it finishes with a dash of salinity that, "revives the senses." Vinous

No wonder Wine Spectator has singled out Domaine Christian Moreau as, "one of the best sources of Chablis in the region."

Summary


THE MERCHANT'S MARK

95+ / 100

Outstanding.  The soil is rich with clay and minerals from fossilized shells of pre-historic oysters. The mineral content of the soil carries through on the palate with a distinct crushed-stone quality. Moreau's Vaillon shows exotic white orchard fruit, great tension and a zesty finish.  Perfectly balanced, it finishes with a dash of salinity.  A fantastic white Burgundy vintage - a fantastic wine from that vintage!

ANTONIO GALLONI

93 / 100

"The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is 40% fermented in barrel that was blended with tank wine two weeks previously.... the palate is very promising with a killer line of acidity that lends so much tension, almost to the point of shrillness (but avoiding that – the pH is 3.19 for those interested). This just revives the senses and there is wonderful salinity on the aftertaste. Superb."
