White Table Wine
Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils
This vineyard, where the average vine age is 60 years, is located on the left bank of the Serein River in the village of Chablis, Côte des Vaillons, the very heart of Chablis. Here, the vines benefit from excellent south and south-east exposure, and the soil is composed of Kimmeridgian clay. Specific to the region, the clay is rich in minerals from the fossilized shells of tiny pre-historic oysters. The mineral content of the soil carries through on the palate as a distinct calcareous crushed-stone quality.
Fruit is hand-harvested in small bins, sorted, then pressed. The wine ferments in cool stainless steel vats; the majority of the wine remains in stainless steel to mature, while a third is transferred to old barrels for six months.
“(40+ year old vines mostly situated in Vaillons proper with additional parcels in Châtains and Epinottes). Here too the nose is exuberantly fruity while displaying background hints of lemon rind, white flower, brine and algae. There is a lovely texture to the utterly delicious middle weight flavours that exhibit good length on the slightly more tightly wound finale. This does need to develop more depth but that should occur over the next 2 to 3 years. 2024+” 89-91 points, Burghound, October 2021
