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.
93 Points - Neal Martin
The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru comes from 0.35ha of 48-year-old vines and sees 18-20 months' ageing on the fine lees. It has a lively, citrus driven bouquet with pressed-white flowers and touches of honeysuckle emerging over time. The palate is well balanced, with an edgy opening. Good depth here, and pithy like the Blanchot, revealing nectarine and grapefruit notes towards the finish. This is perhaps the best offering from Louis Moreau in this vintage.
