Christian Moreau Chablis Vaudésir 2018
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.

VinousThe 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is powerful, dense and closed in on itself. There is plenty of intensity and depth in the glass, but those qualities need time to fully emerge. Dried pear, almond, dried flowers, sage, mint and yellow fruit give the 2018 its brooding feel. The Vaudésir is one of the most reticent wines in this range today, but there is plenty of material there. 91-93
