Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils Chablis 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our vineyard is located in the village of Chablis, in the very heart of the Chablis country, on the left bank of the Serein River, with a south-south east exposure. It is located in the climat Les Pargues. The soil is kimmeridgien calcareously clay which goes back to the upper jurrassic age (portlandien). Density plantation: 6500 vines/ha. Average age of the vines: 47 years. Harvested by hand, carried by small trailers which unload the grapes by vibration to avoid crushing, then we use a sorting table to eliminate unripe or damaged grapes. Pneumatic winepress. Cool racking and temperature-controlled fermentation. Aging on fine lees for 10 month. The winemaking and aging are all done in stainless steel vats.

Familiar scents of wet pebbles and blanched nuts are matched by flavours of crunchy green apples and bracing acidity in this elegant and persistent French white.

A subtle but intriguingly diverse range of floral and herbal aromas rise from the glass of Moreau 2011 Chablis Les Clos, along with intimations of lemon and white currant that prevail on a substantial but surprisingly tart palate. The lift, clarity, complexity and allure of the corresponding Valmur are not equaled here, at least for now; but there is a lovely persistence of floral and herbal essences as well as refreshing primary juiciness and sheer wet stone. Plan to follow this through at least 2018.

Pale, bright yellow. Ineffable high-pitched aromas of pineapple, white flowers, ginger, quinine and crushed stone. Boasts superb purity and penetration to its flavors of lemon, grapefruit, pineapple and wet stone. Best today on the very long, echoing finish, which saturates the palate with dusty stone. This has turned out very well but calls for at least five years of patience.
