A bright pale gold color highlights the famous 2000 J. Moreau & Fils Chablis, gold medal winner at Burgundy's prestigious Macon fair. Clean mineral scents, intertwined with white fruits and citrus, provide an amplifying nose. At first sip, the classic explosion of crisp, dry, flinty flavors that characterize most fine Chablis prevails, but as the wine opens, it reveals an added layer of cream that tantalizes the palate. On the finish, an array of minerals and citrus peel provide a long, subtly complex finish that lingers long after the wine is swallowed. The 2000 J. Moreau & Fils Chablis walks the walk, providing a mouth filling glass of bone dry Chardonnay that is both highly flavored and beautifully balanced. And in true Chablis fashion, the 2000 Moreau Chablis, like all of this firm's offerings, is made entirely without oak. Enjoy this fine white moderately chilled at first; then allow it to open slowly in the glass. In this way it will release all of its latent goodness and subtle charm.
An ideal aperitif, the 2000 Moreau Chablis is also the classic accompaniment to oysters, shellfish, and most other assorted fruits de mer. We also recommend this classic Chablis with sushi, sashimi, and tempura. Many other traditional Japanese dishes, including shrimp, fish, and vegetable tempuras also provide highly recommended choices with the Moreau Chablis. White meats, cheese risottos, and homemade pastas in cream based sauces offer more lovely matches. As an added bonus, the 2000 Chablis should continue to evolve in bottle. It will then provide a wonderful companion to more complex dishes such as lobster and poached salmon - that is if you can muster enough discipline to wait another year or so. Enjoy!
