Christian Moreau Chablis Premier Cru Vaillon 2009

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Pale, bright yellow. Ripe apple and a hint of marzipan on the nose. Sweet, sexy and supple; seamless and broad. More complex and fine-grained than the village wine. Best today on the lingering back end, which features an enticing fresh peach flavor and good mineral lift.

Pale bright yellow. Crystallized lemon peel and tangerine on the creamy nose. Concentrated and quite ripe but at the same time firmly constructed and perfumed, with a lovely citrus zest lift in the mouth. As dry as this is, it comes across as creamier than the 2008 version, but the dryness cuts the impression of sweetness.

The 2009 Chablis Vaillons is a round, textured wine that impresses for its harmony and sense of proportion. Sweet, open aromatics meld into a generous core of yellow stone fruits. Hints of smoke and crushed rocks add further nuance on the pliant mid-palate and finish. This is quite suave and elegant throughout. It should drink well right out of the gate. Approximately 35% of the wine was aged in oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2019.
