Brand Christian Moreau

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.

The 2019 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru yielded 35hl this year and is matured 50% in new and used barrels and the rest in tank. It has a well-defined bouquet with precise scents of yellow flowers, struck flint and smoke. I may actually prefer this to the Clos des Hospices cuvée. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, taut and focused and full of energy. The Clos des Hospices has more depth and intensity on the finish, so overall it has the upper hand, but this is a serious Les Clos that will give 20–25 years of drinking pleasure. 93-95

Interestingly, this is aromatically quite similar to the Valmur save for the presence of an abundance of floral elements. The super-intense, indeed almost painful, broad-shouldered flavors possess evident minerality and excellent delineation that possess a bracing salinity on the hugely long finale. This too is clearly built for extended cellaring and is going to need at least 5 to 7 before it will be approachable. In a word, excellent. 92-94
