Description

Christian Moreau, one of the leading figures in Chablis, is producing the wines he loves under his own name. Free of any personal involvement with the negociant company that his family founded and sold, with his son Fabien they founded Domaine Christian Moreau Pére et Fils in 2001 and set up their winemaking operation in the very heart of the Chablis country, at the foot of its famous Grands Cru vineyards.

The Domaine holdings are located in the best oriented parcels, and bottlings include Grand Crus Les Clos, Valmur, Vaudésir, Blanchot, and Les Clos des Hospices (a Monopole from the Moreau family), Premier Cru Vaillon, as well as Chablis AC, and some Petit Chablis. Every parcel is harvested by hand to bring out the very best from each vineyard. The Moreau's winemaking philosophy is non-interventionist at its core, entailing biodynamic practices aimed toward creating low-yield, high-quality harvests. Additionally, grapes for every wine from the Chablis AC to the Les Clos Grand Cru are hand-picked.

This cuvée of Clos des Hospices is located inside the main appellation of les Clos. It is a parcel of 0,5ha bought by the Moreau family from the Hospices of Chablis in 1904. It has always been vinified separately since then. This is the fourth most highly rated Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos wine (based on critic scores).

“Being the 6th generation of the family producing wines was and still is a challenge for me, trying to avoid the pressure you could have with this “wine heritage”. But with the quality of the vineyard that my family passed on, the basis of the expression of our wines is here, and our work is to honour our terroirs. Looking back on what we did since the first vintage 2002 with my father and our team, I am very proud of all the work we did together, to increase step by step, the quality and the typicity of our wines. With respect to the persons, of nature, and with humility, we will continue this way and face all the new challenges in front of us. As my father says, “Chablis is unique”, and our goal is to show it!”

Tasting Profile

Nose
Rich and powerful with exotic fruits and a mineral concentration. Plenty of spice envelops giving great depth and breadth.
Palate
Very well defined bouquet of oranges, honeysuckle and melon. The palate is filled with minerality, an excellent sense of energy, and well-balanced acidity. This is a complex, delicious, and meant to be enjoyed.
