Domaine Christian Moreau is one of the most respected names in Chablis blessed with magnificent vineyard holdings in the best areas of Chablis. The highlights are undoubtedly the amazing range of Grand cru vineyards including one single holding of approximately 3 hectares in Les Clos as well as 0.41 hectares of Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos plus slightly smaller holdings in Valmur, Blanchots and Vaudesir. The wines are gaining in even clearer expression with the vineyards having been certified organic since 2013 and together with some new tanks and other investments the results are showing clearly in the wines with each vintage. These are wines of precision, crystal clear typicity, and elegance that will age classically while enabling tremendous enjoyment throughout their lives.

Other Reviews....
Here too there is a whiff of lychee on the ripe aromas of white and yellow peach, white flower and zest, all of which is trimmed in discreet wood influence. The notably finer medium weight flavors possess very fine mid-palate concentration while delivering solid length on the bitter lemon, clean, dry and nicely sleek finish. Drink through 2028+.

The 2022 Chablis Vaillon 1er Cru has a taut nose with light sea spray scents infusing the green apple aromas. This is quite austere, considering the season. The palate is well-balanced with yellow plum and tangerine on the entry. It’s slightly low in acidity, but I admire its lilting quality, and it feels persistent on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2025-2035.
