Each year Louis Moreau holds on until the last moment to harvest. It takes nerves of steel but it clearly pays off, as his wines combine a wonderful citrus intensity with classic steely freshness. From a mature single vineyard, this is a superb 2019.
Sometimes it pays to be last. When neighbours in Chablis start their grape harvest, Louis Moreau waits. Just a few days, but it’s nerve racking, especially when the summer is as warm as in 2019. The reward is a Chablis with extra levels of ripeness and intensity. (And that's in a vintage already considered one of "pure pleasure and impeccable balance".) Louis is the sixth generation of his family at the domaine - they celebrated their 200th anniversary in 2014 – and over that time, they have acquired many small parcels of vines. All the grapes for Biéville come from a single vineyard planted in 1965 by his father. It has ideal terroir for Chardonnay, as you'll taste in this superb 2019. Serve cellar cool, ideally with a plate of oysters.
"Love it! Delicious and smooth with real depth. Definitely on my "Re-order" list"
