Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 93.7 pts. and median of 93 pts. in 5 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by godx on 4/16/2013 & rated 93 points: France 2013 - Chablis (Chablis): Tasted at the Domaine. Wow, what a nice. Classic Chablis notes of lemon, lime, stones, saline, minerals and a very light trace of oak. Energetic on the palate with great acidity and a long finish. Most complete and complex wine of this tasting. I’d be happy to drink this now for it’s energy and tension but should age for a decade plus. Outstanding. 93+ (1258 views)
 Tasted by alanr on 3/12/2013 & rated 95 points: 2013 La Paulee, New York; 3/12/2013-3/14/2013: Wow, rich and vibrant, an underpinning of crushed stone, long finish. Just fabulous. (1580 views)
 Tasted by Gargantua on 3/9/2013: La Paulée de New York 2013 (Metropolitan Pavilion, NYC): Max 50% oak; of that, max 5% new oak, typical regimen for their Grand Cru. This was really nice. At first I feared it would be too oaky (the 2011 tasted recently was quite masked). But: nah. This was really nice, and I'd love to drink it again. Gaining in concentration in an elegant way vs previous bottles. (1358 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 3/9/2013: Focus on 2010 Burgundy- The 2013 La Paulee Grand Tasting (Metropolitan Pavilion, New York): Again, classic mix of Chablis iodine and oyster shell. Rich lemon cream flavors to start and then a long, deep lime and herb finish. Of the 3 Grand Crus, this showed only a touch of wood which did not define the wine. Classic, outstanding. (1676 views)

Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils

Producer website

Christian Moreau, former director of J. Moreau & Fils in Burgundy's Chablis region, is unveiling a new project in Chablis. Three wines of the new Christian Moreau Pére & Fils label—a Chablis 1999, a premier cru Vaillons 1999 and a small amount of grand cru Les Clos 1999—will reach wine shops in the United States this spring.

The new wines are made from purchased grapes, but Moreau will regain the use of his own premiers and grands crus vineyards in 2001, after the expiration of his contract to supply grapes to J. Moreau & Fils, which is now owned by Burgundy giant Boisset. Among Moreau's vineyard holdings are 25 acres of grand cru Vaudisir, Valmur and Les Clos, including the tiny Clos des Hospices, a coveted 5.3-acre monopole, or single-owner vineyard, in the heart of Les Clos.

Joining Moreau as winemaker is his son Fabien, who studied enology at Dijon University. "There will be no more vins de table," said the elder Moreau. "I want to stay on the small side and control the quality." To achieve growth from 250 cases to 6,500 cases annually, Moreau purchased one of the William Févre wineries from Bouchard Pére & Fils.

The new Christian Moreau Chablis, Vaillons and Les Clos, not yet rated, will sell for about $17, $28 and $50, respectively. Frederick Wildman & Sons of New York, whose contract with J. Moreau & Fils ended recently, is the importer, continuing the relationship that Christian Moreau's father, Guy, began in 1938.

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
