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.

An excellent village offering.
Fresh and lemony, offering Granny Smith apple and mineral notes. Balanced on a lean frame, with a mouthwatering finish.
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 ...
