The 2019 Chablis Vaillon 1er Cru Cuvée Guy Moreau is matured in 1- to 4-year-old barrels for 12–14 months. It has a lovely bouquet, quite complex, the orange pith and lemon verbena combining nicely with flinty scents. The palate is well balanced with an energetic opening, a slightly honeyed texture and a judicious dab of spice. Very harmonious all the way through to the finish. There is a sense of panache about this Vaillon that is very compelling.’ (93-95) points. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media, September 2020.
One of the oldest and most respected names in Chablis, this branch of the Moreau family is headed by Christian and now his son Fabien who is the winemaker and manager.
Possessing magnificent vineyard holdings built up in some of the very best vineyard areas of Chablis by the family over generations (including nearly 8 hectares out of Chablis' total 92 hectares of Grand cru), this small but remarkable estate has in just a few years established itself as one of the leading producers of Chablis producing consistently outstanding wines.
A combination of exceptional vineyard sites, old vines, brilliant winemaking and fastidious care in every step of production has resulted in these wines being regarded as amongst the very best produced in Chablis. These are wines of precision, crystal clear typicity, and elegance, that will age classically while enabling tremendous enjoyment throughout their lives. - Importer Note
