Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2016

Chablis, Burgundy, FrancePineapple is not a descriptor I associate with Grand Cru Chablis but this 2016 Valmur offers it up in spades. Its not fat or sweet or ripe but cool and dried and pithy with a wealth of bright citrus to cover it. It's crisp and precise but with an underlying power that is yet to be released. Moreau owns 1.2 hectares in the masterful grand cru and they seem to get a lot out of it. A touch of new oak mixed with older barrels round out bright fruit and intensity of the wine. You could drink this in now, but I suggest waiting five years for the full picture.Tasted: 01 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 92.99 BCLS AB 55.00 fine wine boutiques MB 58.00 Producer: Domaine Christian MoreauDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
