Citrusy & Vibrant

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 terroirs of the Petit Chablis appellation are located on the higher slopes or the beginnings of the plateau. They are made up of hard limestone and sometimes silty soils, with an elevation between 230 and 280 meters above sea level. 

This 100% Chardonnay is fresh, focused and highly aromatic. The nose is extremely fruity, with notes of apple and citrus. On the palate, this Petit Chablis is fresh, vibrant, round and mineral. Perfect to drink on its own. Classically paired with seafood and salads garnished with citrus.

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.

Press Reviews

91 points - Michael Godel

As for Louis Moreau well here he goes again raising the profile of a Chablis, this time with the Petit, of appellation and nothing to do with size. Meaning this is a hefty example of aromatic rise and also mouthfeel but with more than a pit stop or two at layers of salinity. You can seriously feel the chalky soil and even more so the fossil content in what is nearly briny chardonnay. How anyone could miss the soil in this Petit-Chablis would be beyond comprehension because fruit is nothing without the soul of this terroir. Drink 2023-2026. Tasted February 2023.

90 points - Megha Jandhyala

This is a clean, uncluttered, focussed petit chablis with distinct notes of lemons, grapefruit, crunchy apples, and wet stones. Acidity is vibrant and the palate is predominantly citrusy, with a hint of salinity. The finish is long, infused with refreshing flavours of grapefruits and citrus zest. Given its citrus-driven flavour profile, this wine should pair well with all sorts of mildly seasoned seafood, including lightly poached white fish. Tasted February 2023.
