Tasting note on the 2007 Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur
Tasting note for the 2007 Christian Moreau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

I get ocean, minerality and citrus. The wine has the weight you expect from a grand cru. The mouthfeel is mooth with green apples and a nice citrus driven acidity. There's good length on the finnish with salt water, minerality and tropical flavours. 90+ points

This is a good wine. It has the weight and the length that you expect from a grand cru Chablis, but there is really not that much more. It delivers, but it does not blow me away.
