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

($41, Frederick Wildman & Sons): Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils labels his Vaillon as the singular, omitting the “s” to emphasize that their grapes come from the original and heart of the vineyard, not an adjacent vineyard that is allowed to use the name Vaillons.  Their parcel — and of course their talent and attention to detail — explain the stature of this wine.  A clear jump up from their village Chablis, it shows the stature of Premier Cru, with more length and complexity.  Its vivacity and stoniness screams Chablis!  Shellfish anyone? 91 Michael Apstein Feb 14, 2017
