One of the oldest and most respected names in Chablis with superb vineyards reflecting the family's long history in Chablis, this branch of the Moreau family is headed by Christian and now his son Fabien who is the winemaker and manager. They may be small but they have established themselves as one of the leading producers of Chablis producing consistently outstanding wines. With relatively small holdings across the appellations, the highlights here are undoubtedly the amazing range of Grand cru vineyards including 3 hectares in Les Clos, as well as .41 hectares of the Monopole Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos plus holdings in Valmur, Blanchots and Vaudesir.

A combination of exceptional vineyard sites, old vines, brilliant wine-making and fastidious care in every step of production has resulted in these wines being regarded as amongst the very best produced in Chablis. Now the wines are gaining in even clearer expression with the vineyards having been certified organic since 2013 and together with some new tanks and other investments the results are showing clearly in the wines with each vintage. These are wines of precision, crystal clear typicity, and elegance, that will age classically while enabling tremendous enjoyment throughout their lives.

Tasting Note:
The grapes for this wine are grown on some of the classic kimmeridgian limestone but also clays without fossils. The result is a wine which is more fruit defined rather than structure. 
Having said that, this is brilliant! It's defined, chiselled and focused with strong citrus fruit, salt laden brine and herbal characters. The acidity is brilliant on this wine - dry, clean and clear cut, with a weightier mid palate to give depth and dimension to this wine with only 12.5% alcohol. Enjoy it on a hot summers days with the ocean at your feet and a dozen oysters.

This is a Dry, Medium- bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Medium in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Long finish.
