From the desirable rive gauche of the River Serein, facing southeast, the Cru Vaillons rarely disappoints and this 2008 from Moreau et fils is no exception: with a clean, lean floral bouquet and enticing dandelion robe the wine exudes yellow sapphire clarity. Upon entry, the lively acidity hints at further aging but provides the usual peachy, Granny Smith apply flavor and lasting finish. An excellent Premier Cru that can match not a few Grand Cru in appeal if not power.

Here the nose is also distinctly cool and admirably pure with notes of fresh acacia blossom and crushed stone notes that complement the equally mineral-suffused middle weight flavors that possess superb intensity and stunning length where the finish ...

Fresh and lemony, offering Granny Smith apple and mineral notes. Balanced on a lean frame, with a mouthwatering finish.
Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of yellow fruits, vanilla, truffle and spearmint, plus a whiff of orange zest. Juicy, firm and dry, with strong acids framing the citrus, mineral and musky spice flavors. The pure, brisk village wine reminded me in style of a 2004. Classic finishing flavors of lemon and minerals.
Greenish straw. Musky ginger, quinine and white pepper notes lift the fruit aromas of lemon, melon, peach and passion fruit. Juicy and quite firm in the mouth, with excellent focus to the lime zest and mineral flavors. This bracing, dry, tangy wine also shows the plumpness and density of the year. An excellent village offering.
Lemon cream and minerals on the nose; riper than the Petit Chablis. Then juicy and supple, with soft citrus flavors nicely framed by healthy acidity. Fruity and pure on the back end.
#59 on 2010 Top 100; Aromas of citrus blossom and chalk dust lead into lemon, vanilla, peach and mineral in this elegant, yet powerful white. Really expressive of place, this evolves across the palate, cascading into a long aftertaste of citrus and m... Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2008 Christian Moreau & Fils Chablis Les Clos 750ml
Scents of rice and toasted lees develop into spice and an oyster-shell complexity as this wine takes on air. Itrsquo;s juicy, rich and long, with a hint of oxidation that suggests drinking it now with a creamy shellfish stew.
