2014 Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis

SKU #1239586 88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 There is enough reduction to suppress the underlying fruit though there is good vibrancy and freshness to the saline and mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that terminate in a clean and dry but not really austere finish. This should be a lovely and altogether classic villages.  (10/2015)

90 points Vinous

 (bottled last June): Classic Chablis aromas of lemon, ginger and yeasty chicken broth. Sappy, concentrated village wine with lovely lemony acidity giving it a distinctly penetrating quality. An excellent village wine with excellent inner-mouth tension and complicating salinity.(ST)  (7/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Precision and harmony define this white, with apple, lemon and mineral flavors, defined by the vibrant acidity. Just a hint of green plum shows on the lingering finish.  (12/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Gentle, easygoing and classic, with austere citrus fruit but a rounded, dairy note on the finish.  (1/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Chablis Villages has a crisp, chalky bouquet which feels a little "punchier" than the previous vintage. The palate is well balanced with quite piercing acidity, racy and linear with a slightly austere, slightly spiced, classic Chablis finish. It would serve as a perfect, affordable introduction to the delights of the region. (NM)  (8/2015)

K&L Notes

Christian Moreau can trace its beginning in Chablis back to 1814, but it was not until 2002 that the domaine was able to bottle wines from their extensive estate holdings under the Christian Moreau Père et Fils name. The only wine not made from 100% domaine-owned vineyard fruit is the 2014 Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis. Intensely floral, with salty/chalky aromas. The palate is bright and focused, with fresh lime and crushed stone flavors that blend nicely with the racy acidity and bright melon notes. (Alex Pross, K&L)

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.
