The Moreau family has been settled in the heart of Chablis since 1884. Louis Moreau, the sixth generation, studied oenology and viticulture in California and took over from his father when he returned to France in 1994. Nowadays, the domaine's vineyards extend all over the four levels of the appellation: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Premier Cru and Grand Cru.

The 'Clos des Hospices dans les Clos', located in the Grand Cru Le Clos, belongs entirely to the Moreau family, and produces opulent and outstanding wines. On the nose, this wine is extremely expressive, with a very strong mineral character. The palate is vibrant with mineral too, showing impressive elegance and depth through the finish.

Enjoy this wine with a seafood risotto.

Press Reviews

Vinous

93 Points

The 2018 Chablis Les Cos Clos des Hospices Grand Cru comes from the domaine's 0.41 hectare monopole, populated by 50 year old vines that were cropped at 54hl/ha this vintage. Matured for 1-820 months on the fine lees, it has a livelier and more energetic bouquet compared to the regular Les Clos; there is heightened minerality here, and greater sense of purpose. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, lightly honeyed in texture, with touches of almond and ginger toward the finish. A fine aftertaste of lemon peel lingers in the mouth. Excellent.
