Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon Cuvée Guy Moreau 2016

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceThe Guy Moreau is made from very old vines planted in 1933 inside the cru Vaillon demarcation. Typically, the fruit is slightly riper that the regular Vaillon and in 2016 a difficult year for rot it appears to have emerged mostly unscathed. The nose is mix of salty/lemon aromas with bits of grass and fresh struck match. The attack is dry and juicy, with more lemon/lime mixed with ripe apple, oyster liqueur and chalky/seaweed/leesy notes. Good intensity and length with a touch of butter and oak in the finish. Drink now or hold through 2021. Freshly shucked west coast oysters are the best match.Tasted: 01 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 65.99 BCLS AB 35.00 fine wine boutiques MB 37.00 Producer: Domaine Christian MoreauDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
