Moreau’s Chablis gives you the best of tradition coupled with perfect contemporary winemaking— simply outstanding. This Chardonnay jumps out of the glass with its complex nose. The palate is full of apple flavours with hints of tropical fruit and citrus acidity. It has excellent texture and a very long zesty finish with a kick of minerality. The fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with natural yeast, then aged 12 months—65% in stainless steel and 35% in oak. The slopes of Les Clos are on the right bank of the Serein River, in the south exposure on the best soils in Chablis. After a devastating frost in 2016, Fabien said, “we were picking only berries; there were no bunches that were not damaged.” This attention to detail makes Fabien one of the best winemakers in Chablis.

Christian Moreau

"Picturesque Chablis village with its Romanesque towers and quiet, narrow streets is the home of Christian Moreau and his son Fabien. The Domaine is one of the most renowned in the area. They firmly believe in wines of provenance, wines that not only represent Chablis, but individual hillsides and fields too. Since recovering the family vineyard they have quickly attained international acclaim and their wines are hailed for their depth and quality. Christian began rejuvenating the vineyards and converted to organic viticulture as he felt the soil had been mistreated for years. He also re-introduced traditional methods such as hand harvesting and sorting as well as a return to natural yeasts."
