Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils, Chablis (Burgundy, France) 2015

($29, Frederick Wildman & Sons): With everyone raving about the Chablis and other white Burgundies from the 2014 vintage, those wines from 2015 may be overlooked, which would be a shame.  Domaine Christian Moreau made an exceptional village Chablis in 2015, a year that produced riper whites compared to 2014.  Fabien Moreau thought the key to their success in 2015 — and they were across all levels — was that they picked early to capture freshness.  This Chablis has a touch more ripeness than their captivating 2014, but plenty of verve and minerality to remind you of its origin.  Those who prefer less steely Chablis will really love it.  But frankly, even those, such as myself, who prefer more steely Chablis, will still love it.
