2016 Domaine de Biéville (Louis Moreau) Chablis

SKU #1312189

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.

Classic Chablis at an great price! Who would have guessed you would see those tw words in a sentence? Classic, with bright acidity and lemon/lime flavors, minerals and a bit of chalk. From older vines, so there is a hint of riper fruit peeking out between start and finish. Green melon, limestone and apple dominate the overall character and there is also a soft, though lingering finish.

Louis Moreau is the sixth generation of his family to make great Chablis, and the pedigree shows in this well-priced 2016 vintage of “de Biéville.” Made entirely in stainless steel, it spends about 4 months on the lees which gives it a rich texture, with a crisp edge from brisk acidity. Rich flavors of green apple, honeydew melon, meyer lemon, and white flowers are expressive and focused, with great calcareous minerality. I think this is the best Chardonnay deal in the store. ​

Bieville is back! The 2016 vintage may not possess the same weighty palate that the hot 2015 vintage did but all the classic flintiness, citrus profile and racy acidity that Chablis is known for is all there.
Top Value!

A super value Chablis that expresses its uniqueness. This wine is elegant, crisp and well-structured. This 2016 Chablis is chalky with a mineral quality. The wine is mouth-filling and full, with a smooth and supple finish.

Beautiful gold color with a great freshness on the nose that wafts out of the glass. Green apples, peaches, a touch of palate weight, and a not-overly-acidic pH make this a great summer dinner wine or pool side sipper.

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.
