2021 Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

2 items left

Chablis, France

The Vaillons emerges from sun-drenched Premier Cru slopes, boasting a precise and vibrant nose. Granny Smith apple and dandelion leaf lead the charge, followed by nuanced layers of acacia honey and lemon zest. Wet stone minerality adds complexity. The palate is light-bodied yet structured, propelled by steely acidity. It dances with flavours of green apple, white grapefruit, and a hint of honeydew melon, all underpinned by a persistent chalky minerality. This is a Chablis built for precision and focus, demanding respect with its laser-like purity. Matches perfectly alongside oysters, amplifying its mineral tension, or harmonizes with delicate white fish and beurre blanc, where its citrusy notes shine. A technical masterpiece from Moreau, Vaillons offers a captivating study in Chablis terroir.

    In the heart of Chablis, Domaine Christian Moreau is a legacy carved in limestone. Founded in 1814, their six generations have mastered the art of crafting wines that whisper the secrets of this unique terroir. Their 12 hectares of Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards bask in the sun-drenched slopes, nourished by Kimmeridgian soil, the very cradle of Chablis' magic.

    Moreau embraces tradition, practicing sustainable viticulture and hand-harvesting their grapes at peak ripeness. Their philosophy, however, isn't a stagnant reverence for the past. They've integrated modern technology and gentle vinification techniques, allowing the essence of Chablis to shine through unadulterated. The wines are as precise as they are expressive. From the steely minerality of Valmur to the vibrant fruitiness of Vaillons, each sip carries the soul of their terroir. Moreau's Chablis isn't about showy opulence; it's about purity, balance, and a captivating connection to the land. It's a testament to their unwavering dedication.
