About the Winery
Domaine Louis Moreau
Winemaker Louis Moreau is the master of the Chablis terroir, where he bottles 100% Chardonnay wines from all four levels of appellation: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Crus and Chablis Grands Cru.
The Domaine owns parcels in five of the seven Grands Cru climats, and works with many plots throughout the region in a sustainable manner. The most prestigious of its wines is the monopole Chablis Grand Cru 'Clos des Hospices' dans Les Clos AOC 2016, acquired by the Moreau family in 1904.
Louis Moreau, who has been leading the domaine since 1994, produces wines with a unique style. Louis Moreau studied oenology-viticulture at Fresno State University and worked at different Californian wineries before he took over the Domaine's operations in 1994, representing the family's sixth generation of vignerons.
90 points - Michael Godel
Moreau’s 2020 petit chablis is yet another example of what is possible in these “lesser” vineyards, first because of what a producer like Moreau has learned to farm and craft, but also in the age of climate change. Ripeness and development is possible in areas it could not have been before, as recent as 10-12 years ago. This by Louis Moreau is crystalline, creamy and viscous with a light cheese note that puts this Chablis in a rightful sense of time and place. Nice pH saltiness attacks the tongue and creates a salve like feeling, melting and dissolving, leaving behind a trail of Chablis flavour. Great quality, to no surprise. Drink 2021-2024. Tasted December 2021.
