To buy great Chablis, you need to trust your producer, estate and vintage. Rest assured that the Moreau family¿s Domaine de Biéville wines always impress ¿ and 2012 was a good year for the ripe yet elegant style for which Biéville is renowned.
Sometimes it pays to be last. When neighbours in Chablis start their grape harvest, Louis Moreau at Domaine de Biéville waits. Usually for around 10 days. It's a nerve racking time ' rain could threaten everything ' but in good vintages like 2012, the reward is a Chablis with extra levels of ripeness and intensity. Not that it's unusual for this to be one of the roundest Chablis wines ' the domaine's 30 year old vines yield some of the most concentrated grapes in the region. They're planted 280 metres above sea level, helping keep the wine fresh and balanced. The Moreau family also own a small parcel of vines in Les Clos (a revered Grand Cru site), have generations of experience and bring first class know-how to this delicious Chablis.
