According to Wine Advocate “Domaine Christian Moreau has been one of the most reliable sources of Chablis in recent years” and this “seductive and pure” Chablis Valmur Grand Cru continues that run of form. A view corroborated by a score of 95 points from Tim Atkin and silver medals from Decanter and the International Wine Challenge. The vastly experienced Moreau family has been based in Chablis for over 200 years. Always innovating, they are now certified organic and use only indigenous yeasts. This Grand Cru comes from a single hectare (about the size of a rugby pitch), and it has been aged half in old oak and half in stainless steel.
Rich and full-bodied, but with that laser-like Chablis acidity. It’s packed with baked apple, crisp pear, tangy greengage, melon, wet stone, lemon zest, gentle spice and that classic display of terroir: a mineral, oyster shell and maritime edge. Time to break out the smoked salmon, herby cheeses, rich potato-based dishes and pasta with truffles. IWC Awards 2018 (2016 vintage) - GOLD Medal.
