Chablis 2016

Domaine Christian Moreau Père & Fils

The versatile, affordable, village Chablis from Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils is bright and crisp, with the classic, taut structure and refreshing minerality that define traditional Chablis. This is a Moreau classic!

Vinification: The winemaking techniques strive to honor the high quality of the terroir, vines and grapes, bringing out the very best in every harvest.

All equipment, from the trailers used to transport the grape harvest to the vats themselves, has been carefully selected so that each parcel of land can be worked separately. All harvesting is done exclusively by hand from the Petit Chablis up to the Grands Crus.

Additional Information

The 2016 Chablis is a ripe, yet bone dry Chardonnay with crisp green apple, mineral and a touch of saline.

    Apple and honey notes mingle in this gossamer white. Fresh and fruity, with a moderately long, apple-accented finish. Drink now.

    Star winemaker Fabien Moreau makes a delicious Chablis, full of fruit, crisp with acidity and with a light, steely edge. This wine is all fruit, ripe lemon and green apple with a tight, fresh aftertaste. Drink from 2019.

    A slightly riper if modestly less tropical nose reflects just enough Chablis character to be persuasive. The round, rich and more voluminous flavors possess good punch and concentration while delivering better depth and length on the somewhat drier finish.
    Grade: 87-89 Points

    "The 2016 Chablis Villages sees no wood contact. This is a step up in terms of aromatics with fragrant peach and nectarine aromas. Not complex, but pure. The palateis well balanced with a fine line of acidity and a saline note surfacing toward the second half. Enjoy this over the next four to five years. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2023."
