2008 Domaine de Biéville (Louis Moreau) Chablis

SKU #1052613

This estate is owned by Louis and Anne Moreau, who farm it with great care. They have stopped using all pesticides, reduced herbicides, started plowing between rows instead of spraying, The vines here are about 45 years old. The Bieville is always a bit rounder in character than their Louis Moreau Chablis, but retains the same sense of freshness and bright minerality to accompany the lovely floral notes. The finish is unmistakably Chablis, with notes of limestone and oyster shells and a very pretty note of white flowers. This is a terrific bottle of wine, and a delight with your Dungeness Crab!

Creamy mouthfeel, with good Chablis minerality on display. Somewhat ripe, but not distractingly so, with, again, that classic Chablis minerality. Tasty.

What a great bottle of white wine from the great 2008 Chablis vintage! This open, ripe white Burgundy is full of Chablis terroir, and has an earthy hint- more like a giveaway- that is distinctive and authoritative. Cinnamon and I will be making room in the cellar for a case of this. Six of the bottles will have to go on the bottom of a big stack, because this wine tastes so darn good right now. The De Bieville is packed with flavor and very long finishing... You will laugh about how little you paid!
Top Value! Drink from 2010 to 2018

A really nice Chablis that is a great introduction to French Burgundy for those who drink California Chardonnay. This is a wonderfully clean and crisp Chablis with a medium-bodied mouthfeel and a zippy finish with crisp minerality. A great buy!

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, M√Ęcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The region north of the Cote d'Or, famous for its steely dry white wines made from Chardonnay. There are 7 Grands Crus vineyards, and numerous Premier Crus. Unfortunately, the name has been borrowed and badly abused by producers of inferior white wines in the US as well as in Australia. True French Chablis is a delicate, stony, crisp Chardonnay, bearing no resemblance to the anonymous plonk so labeled here.
