France – Chablis
Louis with his wife Anne and father Jean-Jacques owns an impressive 48ha of vines (for Domaine Louis Moreau) from which the best wine is kept, and the rest sold to négociants. There is a full range produced; from Petit Chablis to Grand Cru, including 5 appellations of Grand Cru and 3 of 1er Cru! The style is focused on pristine fruit, crisp acidity, clean lemon, grapefruit, hay and green apple flavours of naked (no oak) limestone-grown chardonnay. There is a very small amount of new oak used in the Grand Crus.

This wine has beautiful purity and verve, with the classic ‘Chablis’ crisp acidity and lemony chardonnay fruit coupled with mouth-watering ‘wetstone/chalky’ minerality that is expected. Yet there is also a little more concentration than usual.
Chablis 1er ‘Vaillons’
The wines of Vaillons possess fresh and mineral aromas of white owers and gun int; also they have charming structure and roundness. There are 8 distinct terroirs which comprise this appellation and its east/south-east exposure offers ideal condi- tions for maturation of the fruit.
