2015 Domaine de Biéville (Louis Moreau) Chablis

SKU #1269826

Domaine de Biéville was established by Jean-Jacques Moreau in the village of Viviers in the 1970s. The contiguous, 65-hectare vineyard was selected for its textbook truffières soil terroir and south/southwest exposure which resembles the premier cru classified vineyards of Chablis. Now with 45+ year old vines, Domaine de Biéville produces a textured and classically styled Chablis which shows its old vine pedigree on a complex and mineral-driven finish.

This Chablis is truly a steal. It's got a bit of a fuller palate and length for days! There are some really bright citrus notes, like freshly grated lemon zest. The fruit is ripe, yet still refreshing. There's a bit of crispy green pear and an incredibly refreshing minerality. This is delicious!

The grapes for this wine were picked approximately 10 days after neighboring Chablis producers had begun their harvest—expect a rounder style with extra levels of ripeness and intensity. This is brimmingwith cheerful citrus, crisp green apple, peach pit and melon, and mouthwatering acidity lingers in the finish.

Yet another one in our lineup of bargain Chablis! Two words that often do not go together. A nice balance of the traditional Chablis elements of acidity, chalk and citrus with added old vine texture and fruit. This one should please those of you who appreciate the crispness of Chablis and also those of you who are looking to experiment away from bigger, buttery, chardonnay.
Top Value!

Absolutely delicious Chablis. Fresh, clean, crisp with deep bright citrus fruit and well pronounced minerality. Easy to drink on its own and pairs well with fresh seafood and salads. Charming wine!

This is a classically styled old vine Chablis -- super clean and linear, showing notes of citrus fruit and chalky minerality throughout. An easy drinking wine that's perfect for the upcoming holiday season.

This is a killer wine at the price! Snappy, poised, and fresh, this little Chablis is everything you might look for from a top producer in the village level. The chalky soils sing in this wine, with sustained minerality and pretty citrus notes. Pair this with your crab dishes and anything light, or seafood-oriented.

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.
