Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils, Chablis (Burgundy, France) 2010 : 90
The 2010 vintage was great for white Burgundies in general and for Chablis in particular. And there’s no question that Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils is one of the leading producers in Chablis. Year after year, this domaine produces classically structured, distinctive wines that reflect their origins beautifully. Moreau captures the uniqueness of the appellation with this “simple” village wine. Unencumbered by oak, its stony and vibrant character reflects the uniqueness of Chardonnay grown in this appellation. It’s great for simple seafood or shellfish.

Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils, Chablis Premier Cru (Burgundy, France) Vaillons 2010 : 92
Moreau’s single vineyard 2010 Chablis are a study in that elusive concept of terroir. Each is distinctive and unique, reflecting the exposure and soil of the site. Their only Premier Cru, their 2010 Vaillons is a step-up in concentration and body from Moreau’s village Chablis (also reviewed this week). Riveting acidity magnifies its alluring richness. What’s particularly gratifying is that the unique flinty minerality of Chablis is maintained despite the extra dose of ripeness.
