Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2002

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceJust over half of Valmur is aged in stainless vats. Forty five per cent is done 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. Look for a spicy, creamy cashew, citrus, green melon, mineral aromas with a floral hint. Ripe, round, elegant but quite rich and dry. Honey, nutty, spicy lees, green apple and lime flavours. Crisp, vibrant finish but quite dry. Needs a year or so to round out and let the oak settle down. Fine intensity and a big future.Tasted: 05 June 2004Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 66.99 Specialty Producer: Domaine Christian MoreauDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
