Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils Chardonnay Chablis 2008
[90 pts Wine Spectator] A racy white nicely balanced and showing lemon apple smoke and flint aromas and flavors. This is smooth and long with a bright refreshing finish. Drink now through 2016 ----- [90 pts Burghound] A classic aromatic profile of green fruit oyster shell and saline hints slides into a racy and pure middle weight flavors where more minerality resurfaces on the punchy and lingering finish. This is a lovely villages and definitely worth a look for both value and quality.

Hints of peony drift through its subtly creamy, chalk-dusted yet persistently refreshing palate. This should continue to display subtle satisfaction over at least the next 3–4 years.
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.
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 ...
