'The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is 40% fermented in barrel that was blended with tank wine two weeks previously. The bouquet is a little muted at the moment, possibly from the recent blending however, the palate is very promising with a killer line of acidity that lends so much tension, almost to the point of shrillness (but avoiding that – the pH is 3.19 for those interested). This just revives the senses and there is wonderful salinity on the aftertaste. Superb.'

91-93/100

One of the oldest and most respected names in Chablis, this branch of the Moreau family is headed by Christian and now his son Fabien who is the winemaker and manager.

Possessing magnificent vineyard holdings built up in some of the very best vineyard areas of Chablis by the family over generations (including nearly 8 hectares out of Chablis’ total 92 hectares of Grand cru), this small but remarkable estate has in just a few years established itself as one of the leading producers of Chablis producing consistently outstanding wines.
