Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2003

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. Toasty, garlic lees, honey, nutty, melon skin, baked apple aromas with a hint of orange flower. Ripe, round, dry, elegant palate with juicy green apple, mineral, spicy lees, honey, cashew flavours and a mineral, leesy, lemon finish. Fine effort if a bit alcoholic.Tasted: 24 October 2005Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 67.99 specialty AB 59.00 fine wine boutiques Producer: Domaine Christian MoreauDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
