Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils Chablis Grand Cru les Blanchots 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Le terroir.............. The slopes, like those of all the Grands Crus vines, are located on the right bank of the Serein River. This terroir form a valley between Les Clos and Vaudésir. Our parcels are located in two exposures, one in the north-west exposure (30 ares), and one in the south-east exposure (70 ares). Density plantation: 7000 vines/ha. Average age of the vines: 40 years. Vinification.............. 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. Aging: 55% of the aging process is done in stainless vats. 45% in barrels (90% in 1,2 and 3 years old barrels, 10% in new and 1 year old barrels) for a period of six months. Natural tartaric stabilisation after 12 months of aging. Bottling date: 04/09/03.

Nicely mineral and well balanced with a solid amount of oak for a Chablis. Very nice. Served with heirloom tomato salad and charcuterie. Followed by sea bass.
