Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils owns a total of 1.25 acres within the famous Grand Cru vineyard of Vaudésir. Vaudésir is located northwest of Les Clos and shares the same hillside terroir of Kimmeridgien marl-calcium carbonate soils.  For vinification, up to 40% of the final blend sees time in oak barrels. Typically just 10% of that is new oak, with the majority being two and three year old barrels.

The Moreau family has been rooted in the heart of Chablis since 1814. At that time Jean Joseph Moreau founded the wine-merchant trading firm. During some ownership changes of the company in the 1970's and 1980's, the Moreau family managed to retain ownership of their vast and important vineyard holdings. Then, with the 2002 vintage, Christian Moreau regained his right to produce wines sourced from the family vineyards and market the wines under his own label. Today, Christian's son, Fabien Moreau, the sixth generation of the family, is the winemaker of this beautiful domaine which produces exclusively Chablis wines.The Domaine holds a total of about 12.5 hectares with vines averaging 45 years old. They follow a traditional philosophy based on respecting Chablis's terroir. Domaine Christian Moreau Pere & Fils also obtained organic certification in the 2010 vintage.

The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has a wonderful bouquet of crushed stone, white peach, mirabelle and light sea spray notes. The palate is very well balanced, with a crisp line of acidity, and quite saline in the mouth, leading to a penetrating and certainly very persistent finish. Superb.

There is a whiff of the exotic to the ripe aromas of yellow orchard fruit compote that reflect reasonable Chablis typicity along with a background nuance of oak toast. There is fine volume to the medium weight and discreetly mineral-inflected flavors that evidence a hint of bitter lemon on the lingering finish. This generous effort is ripe but not heavy though it would be fair to observe that it doesn't have the energy of the best in the range.
