Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre 2008, Domaine Moreau-Naudet

Pete and I covered half a dozen of the recent round of Burgundy 08 en primeur tastings and, although there appear to be good and bad wines of both colours, in our opinion it is a wonderful vintage for Chablis.  If you’d like to invest in a case to lay down for a year or two then this is our top tip.  It shows beautiful leesy, mineral aromas, fabulous freshness, and it is enhanced by a very subtle hint of old oak.  I’m not always a fan of oaked Chablis but this one really works.  You’ll find it at Loeb and J&B and prices vary from £149 – £180 per case in bond (which means VAT is not included).
