The Wine

This Petit Chablis is from vines located at the top of the hill of Grand Crus only metres from the Grand Cru Valmur and also this wine includes another very small 0.4 ha planting also at the crest of the hill of Grand Cru Vaudesir. This wine shows amazing depth and detail and provides remarkable value. An absolute bargain but unfortunately very limited quantities!

More fruit defined rather than structure - however 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.

About the Wine Maker

One of the oldest and most respected names in Chablis with superb vineyard holdings reflecting the families very 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. Possessing magnificent vineyard holdings built up in some of the very best vineyard areas of Chablis by the family over generations (including nearly 8 hectares out of Chablis total 92 hectares of Grand cru), this small but remarkable estate has in just a few years established itself as one of the leading producers of Chablis producing consistently outstanding wines. 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. The quality here is again so good that I'm tempted to say that Chablis has yet another leading light to add to the usual stars of Raveneau and Dauvissat. Burghound
