J Moreau Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, France 2018
VINTAGE : 2018
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : Burgundy, Chablis
VARIETALS : Chardonnay
Located on the left bank of the Serein river, in the southwest of the Chablis region, the 105 hectares of Premier Cru Vaillons vines enjoy particularly favourable exposure and the wines are well deserving of their excellent reputation. All the Chablis soils diversity is embodied by this Premier Cru from a meticulous selection of 3 plots blended after separate vinification.
Light gold colour. An expressive and complex nose with almond, peach and mandarin notes. The mouth is fresh yet sweet with aromas of yellow fruits elegantly blended with a nice minerality. A long and persistant finish.
A great companion to all fish (salmon in white butter sauce), shellfish and crustaceans (guinea fowl) and white meats such as a roasted capon.
