The 2012 Chablis is a ripe, yet bone dry Chardonnay with crisp green apple, mineral and a touch of saline. The versatile, affordable, village Chablis from Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils is bright and crisp, with the classic, taut structure and refreshing minerality that define traditional Chablis.
"The 2012 Chablis is striking. Bright, focused and impeccably layered, the 2012 is a beautiful wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Crushed rocks, pears and white flowers all resonate on the brilliant, precise finish.
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Bottled a few weeks before my June tasting, the generic Moreau 2012 Chablis displays tart-edged but succulent apple, white peach and white currant wreathed in wintergreen, its tartness harnessed to juicy refreshment and displaying an unmistakable if subtle expression of salt, stone and iodine characteristic of its genre. The sense of lift – even at nearly 13% alcohol, a figure typical for the Moreaus’ vintage collection, but on the high side for wines of this vintage – delightfully complements the cooling, downright thirst-quenching character of this fine value and remarkably eloquent exemplar of its modest appellation. Enjoy through 2015. "
