2014 J. Moreau et Fils Chablis "200th Anniversary"

SKU #1267342 96 points Decanter

 A sophisticated array of aromas and flavours; acacia, lemongrass and lemon curd with hints of smoke and minerality. Complex on the palate with lip-smacking acidity, creaminess and juicy fruit. An elegant length is topped off with a fine grained flinty finish. Charming and harmonious.  (7/2016)

Wine Enthusiast

 Soft and fruity, this is a lemon-scented wine that has an attractive tang of minerality. The texture is laced with acidity, with a nervous energy. It's fresh and ready to drink. (RV)  (10/2015)

The moment the 2014 inventory hit our Hollywood store, I was at the register, chatting with a customer about Burgundy as I rang up his cart full of impressive selections. He noticed a dolly piled with Moreau boxes being wheeled past and stopped, practically mid-sentence, to request a bottle. We pulled one right out of the still-sealed top case and added it to his order. Moral of the story? The wine is so good that sometimes it doesn’t even make it to the shelf! A crisp workhorse of a Chablis, this shines with lemon and apple notes and though more linear, manages to show both great acid and an underlying roundness. This complex Chardonnay is a natural to pair with food, and at barely twenty bucks, even the price is refreshing.

I would like to sit down with this bottle of Chablis , a Dungeness crab and finish off Both of them. A dozen Miyagi oysters would work also. This wine is brilliant with a light feel. Green Apple and Mango , Lemon grass, Some floral notes. Great drive with a long finish. All for $19.99

Need a clean, refreshing sipper or a seafood partner just under $20? Look no further. Here's an everyday Chablis done very well. Starting with a pretty fruit driven nose, and following up with silky, soft mouth feel, vibrant acidity and a hint of saline, this is super drinkable with a lovely citrus finish.

What a delightful wine--quite rich on the nose with toasted apple and oak nuances. Fine acidity on the palate, this is a great everyday drinker when you find Sancerre a bit too acidic. Very smooth on the palate and wonderful acid balance. Some spicy undertones on the palate. Value!
Drink from 2016 to 2020

The 2014 J. Moreau et Fils Chablis is a fantastic deal! Easily one of the best wines we have available for under $20 this Chablis is now officially my house wine. Loaded with beautiful aromas of white flower, lemon chiffon and wet stone this racy, medium-bodied white has citrus, iodine and green fig flavors with bright acidity and great balance. The finish is energetic and long with snappy tannins and lingering fruit notes that slowly fade away. I was a bit skeptical when I saw the 96pt score but after tasting it I am a believer.
Top Value! Drink from 2016 to 2020

Another delightful option for affordable Chablis that tastes like it should command a higher price point. A little smoke and white fruit in the nose lead to a bright, complex, but well balanced body. A touch of smoke with white stone fruit and minerality are lifted and carried by the high acid in the wine that also helps give the wine a long finish.

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.
