2014 Domaine Louis Moreau Chablis

SKU #1215021

This fantastic direct import has been in the Moreau family since the late-1800s, who have acquired an impressive range of parcels in Grands Crus, including a monopole, and Premier Crus. Classic Chablis crispness with a nose of clean clay and minerals. On the palate, good mid-palate weight with meyer lemon, limestone, nectarine and kiwi. An excellent vintage for Chablis with an even more excellent price!

Who doesn't like a good Chablis? This is a classic Chablis with lemon/lime fruit, chalk, orange and clay. A wonderful value at this price and just perfect with a flaky whitefish or scallops.

The Louis Moreau Chablis shows very “classic” Chablis-like flavors and texture. Its racy acidity and mineral driven backbone keeps the wine in perfect balances with its rich middle fruit. For under $20 this is quite serious Chablis.

It is such a joy to discover, taste, and enjoy a simple villages production from this great Chardonnay area that comes across with the complexity and elegance of a Premier Cru. That is exactly what this 2014 from Louis Moreau delivers. Distinctive, pronounced aromas of an apple-y note that is supported by that classic slate-like to chalky mineral quality, the flavors are so precise and well defined with excellent structure and viscosity, yet with that characteristic acid backbone and clear Chablis definition, both in its mid-range palate impression and in its mouthwatering finish. This is a steal, and The Bean has demanded that I bring home several cases of this Gem for our everyday consumption with the upcoming crab season. Great Value! Don’t Miss This! ***** 12.5% ABV *****
Drink from 2015 to 2020

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- 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, Mâcon, 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.
Country:

France

- 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.

Sub-Region:

Chablis

- 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.
