Mineral & Elegant

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.

Les Clos is the largest grand cru in Chablis and is considered the quintessential wine of Chablis for many. The site generally produces one of the most potent and longest-lived wines of the appellation and yet can be a pleasure to drink in its youth. Since 2013, this parcel grapes are vinified and aged 100% in stainless steel tank to keep its finesse and elegance.

The Domaine Louis Moreau Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru displays a very mineral bouquet, with an elegant finesse and impressive length on the palate. Pair this premier cru with roasted monkfish.

This product is part of the LCBO February Classics Catalogue. It will take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered from its release date.

Press Reviews

Wine Enthusiast

Hints of cool chalk and bright lemon show on this wine's shy but fresh nose. A whisper of smoke accompanies the stony, wet-chalk notes. Chalkiness is even more pronounced on the palate, pervading texture and body, but also referencing lemon zestiness and riper tangerine. Gorgeously fresh now, this alluring wine is certain to evolve. Drink by 2040.
