Christian Moreau Chablis Valmur Grand Cru 2009
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A less forthcoming but similar nose that is trimmed in discreet oak treatment marries into richer yet more detailed middle weight flavors that are admirably fresh and pure before culminating in a palate staining, balanced and driving finish of striking length, excellent purity and moderate austerity. This is a big and robust Valmur that should make for a really lovely wine in a few years.
This cohesive white offers intensity to its apple, green plum and citrus flavors. The structure shows on the finish, as citrus and a hint of vanilla chime in on the aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2020. 300 cases imported.
The Domaine holdings are located in the best oriented parcels, and bottlings include Grand Crus Les Clos, Valmur, Vaudésir, Blanchot, and Les Clos des Hospices (a Monopole from the Moreau family), Premier Cru Vaillon, as well as Chablis AC, and some Petit Chablis. Every parcel is harvested by hand to bring out the very best from each vineyard. The Moreau's winemaking philosophy is non-interventionist at its core, entailing biodynamic practices aimed toward creating low-yield, high-quality harvests. Additionally, grapes for every wine from the Chablis AC to the Les Clos Grand Cru are hand-picked.
Fabien Moreau became the winemaker with the 2002 vintage, and is already producing remarkable results. With previous experience in New Zealand, Fabien is a visionary young winemaker who is a sincere adherent to the tenants of terroir. As such, the wines of Christian Moreau Pere et Fils are remarkable for their authenticity, distinctiveness, and exquisite quality.
