Domaine Christian Moreau is a highly esteemed and long-standing name in Chablis, known for its exceptional vineyard holdings and rich family history in the region. Led by Christian Moreau and now his son Fabien, who serves as the winemaker and manager, this remarkable estate has quickly established itself as one of the leading producers of Chablis, consistently crafting outstanding wines. The estate boasts magnificent vineyard holdings, carefully accumulated over generations, including an impressive nearly 8 hectares of Grand Cru out of Chablis' total 92 hectares. Notable among these holdings is a single 3-hectare plot in Les Clos, along with .41 hectares in Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos, and smaller plots in Valmur, Blanchots and Vaudesir. This exceptional combination of vineyard sites, old vines, meticulous winemaking and unwavering attention to detail has earned the estate a reputation for producing some of the finest wines in Chablis. While Domaine Christian Moreau has relatively smaller holdings in Petit, village and 1er cru Chablis, the true highlights lie in their remarkable range of Grand Cru vineyards. Since 2013, the vineyards have been certified organic, and recent investments have further improved the quality of the wines. Each vintage showcases the wines' precision, typicity and elegance, while also allowing them to age gracefully and provide immense pleasure throughout their lives. Fabien Moreau, who took over as winemaker in 2002, has already achieved remarkable results. With previous experience in New Zealand and a deep respect for terroir, he brings authenticity, distinctiveness and exquisite quality to the wines of Christian Moreau Pere et Fils. The Petit Chablis originates from vineyards positioned atop the hill of Grand Crus, just meters away from the Grand Cru Valmur. Additionally, a very small 0.4-hectare planting, located at the crest of the hill of Grand Crus above Vaudesir, has been recently added by the Moreau family. This wine impresses with its depth, detail and exceptional value. However, availability is limited due to its small production, second only to the tiny 0.41-hectare plot of Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos. The wines are certified organic and vegan-friendly, further adding to their appeal. The Domaine Christian Moreau Père Et Fils Petit Chablis 2022 is a delightful white wine that showcases the unique typicity of the Chablis terroir. On the nose, this wine offers enticing aromas of chalk, hazelnut and green apple, complemented by hints of ripe yellow plum. The palate is crisp and refreshing, with a lively acidity that brings a sense of vibrancy to the wine. The primary flavors of this Petit Chablis are beautifully expressed, offering a delightful combination of freshness and depth. With its excellent balance and elegant structure, the Domaine Christian Moreau Père Et Fils Petit Chablis 2022 is a true representation of the Chablis style. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but also has the potential to age gracefully, allowing for further development of its complexity and character.
