Winery Note:


From vines planted in 1933. 70% vinified in tank and 30% in oak, less than 2% new) “(12.8% alcohol natural; Distinctly riper on the nose than the classic Vaillons, offering scents of lemon oil and orange blossom. More tactile in the mouth as well, conveying an impression of dusty extract to the ripe citrus, ginger and quinine flavors. These 83-year-old vines are the estate’s oldest. Powerful, penetrating wine with terrific acidity for the year. (90-92)” Vinous Media July 2016

Importer Note:

One of the oldest and most respected names in Chablis, this branch of the Moreau family is headed by Christian and now his son Fabien who is the winemaker and manager.

Possessing magnificent vineyard holdings built up in some of the very best vineyard areas of Chablis by the family over generations (including nearly 8 hectares out of Chablis’ total 92 hectares of Grand cru), this small but remarkable estate has in just a few years established itself as one of the leading producers of Chablis producing consistently outstanding wines.

With relatively small (but very well sited) holdings in Petit, village and 1er cru Chablis, the highlights here are undoubtedly the amazing range of Grand cru vineyards including one single holding of approximately 3 hectares in Les Clos as well as .41 hectares of Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos plus slightly smaller holdings in Valmur, Blanchots and Vaudesir.

A combination of exceptional vineyard sites, old vines, brilliant winemaking and fastidious care in every step of production has resulted in these wines being regarded as amongst the very best produced in Chablis. These are wines of precision, crystal clear typicity, and elegance, that will age classically while enabling tremendous enjoyment throughout their lives.
