Domaine Moreau-Naudet 2020 'Vaillons' 1er Cru Chablis, Burgundy, France

Heavily influenced by Vincent Dauvissat, the late Stéphane Moreau was a gifted vigneron who quickly made his impact in the wine world, producing ethereal Chablis that exemplify Chardonnay at its textural and mineral peak. After his early passing in 2016, his wife has taken over the reins of the estate, and continues to channel Stéphane's talents and winemaking philosophies. 

Winemaker: Virginie Moreau

Farming: Organic

Variety: 100% Chardonnay

Terroir: Moreau-Naudet's holdings in Vaillons are around 1.7 hectares from Roncière, Séchet (75 year old vines) and Epinottes. Fermentation is, as always, with natural yeast with up to a three month maceration on lees. Raised in stainless steel.

Vinification: Hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeasts, and a long maceration on lees. The wine is then aged for an average of 18 months on lees in a combination of stainless steel and 600-liter French oak barrels of which only 20% is new. (Most of the wine is aged in stainless steel, with around 2/3 in steel and 1/3 in oak.)
