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.
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.
