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 EnthusiastMoreau owns three acres of this, the smallest, grand cru vineyard. Delicate toast flavors beautifully enhance the great fruitiness of the wine. Bright apple, apricot and quince flavors are laced with a tight texture, toast and final acidity. Leave this wine to mature and drink from 2021.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has an attractive bouquet with scents of dried pineapple, quince and a touch of melted candle waxquite pithy in style. The palate is well balanced with a crisp entry and a fine line of acidity cutting through the lightly honeyed fruit, leading to an attractive, precise finish that lingers long in the mouth. Excellent. 92-94

BurghoundModerate wood stops short of fighting with the ripe aromas of white peach, melon, algae and citrus rind whiffs. The slightly richer and more imposingly-scaled big-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that confers a sappy texture to the more powerful if slightly less mineral-driven finale. 91-93

Wine SpectatorThe core flavors of peach, apple and lemon are framed by spicy oak in this taut, tensile white. Focused, lingering with lemon and spice notes on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2025. 700 cases made.
