Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils owns a total of 1.25 acres within the famous Grand Cru vineyard of Vaudésir. Vaudésir is located northwest of Les Clos and shares the same hillside terroir of Kimmeridgien marl-calcium carbonate soils.  For vinification, up to 40% of the final blend sees time in oak barrels. Typically just 10% of that is new oak, with the majority being two and three year old barrels.

The Moreau family has been rooted in the heart of Chablis since 1814. At that time Jean Joseph Moreau founded the wine-merchant trading firm. During some ownership changes of the company in the 1970's and 1980's, the Moreau family managed to retain ownership of their vast and important vineyard holdings. Then, with the 2002 vintage, Christian Moreau regained his right to produce wines sourced from the family vineyards and market the wines under his own label. Today, Christian's son, Fabien Moreau, the sixth generation of the family, is the winemaker of this beautiful domaine which produces exclusively Chablis wines.The Domaine holds a total of about 12.5 hectares with vines averaging 45 years old. They follow a traditional philosophy based on respecting Chablis's terroir. Domaine Christian Moreau Pere & Fils also obtained organic certification in the 2010 vintage.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir is completely matured in barrel. For me, this has a more convincing bouquet than the Blanchots with some gorgeous yellow flower, orange blossom and almost sweet marzipan like aromas. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, detailed and precise, the mineralité coming through towards the harmonious and pleasing finish. This represents a sterling follow-up to the fantastic 2014 Vaudésir. 92-94

Wine SpectatorVanilla and lanolin notes frame peach, lemon cake and apple flavors, bolstered by fresh acidity. Long, leaving a lemony impression on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 36 cases imported.
