Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon Cuvée Guy Moreau 2008

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceLots of lime, spicy, green apple skin, oyster shell, butter, lees, light garlic, grassy, pear aromas with a touch of vanilla. Fresh, crisp, dry, juicy, slightly austere palate with oyster liqueur, lime, green apple skin, lees, chalky, vanilla, garlic, honey, lemon flavours. A bit more austere but more intense on the finish than the regular cuvee. This will benefit from 2-4 years bottle age. Great acidity and fruit balance for aging. The Guy Moreau cuvée is made from a parcel of vines planted by Guy Moreau in 1934. The vinification and ageing is done in a 60/40 mix of stainless steel vats and barrels where 90 percent of the wood is one, two or three years old all aged for six months in wood.Tasted: 05 September 2010Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 43.00 specialty listing AB 35.00 fine wine boutiques MB 37.00 Producer: Domaine Christian MoreauDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
