The Moreau family has lived in the heart of Chablis since 1814. At that time Jean-Joseph Moreau founded the wine-merchant trading firm. In 1974 Hiram Walker acquired 50% of the company and acquired the remaining shares in 1985. J. Moreau et Fils was then sold with no member of the family remaining in the company to Boisset in Nuits St Georges. The Moreau family retained ownership of their vineyard holdings throughout these transitions.
With the 2002 vintage, Christian Moreau Père & Fils regained their right to produce wines sourced from their extensive vineyard holdings and market the wines under their own name. Today, Fabien Moreau, the sixth generation of the family, is the super-star winemaker of this beautiful Domaine in Chablis. After graduating in Oenology in Dijon and earning a MBA at E.N.I.T.A in Bordeaux, Fabien also studied in New Zealand.
The Chablis “AC” is their only wine that is not produced from 100% of Domaine-grown fruit. The Domaine holds a total of about 12.5 hectares with vines averaging 45 years old. The Domaine is committed to the expression of every nuance of its vineyards, terroir by terroir.
Christian Moreau Chablis is a ripe, yet bone dry Chardonnay with crisp green apple, mineral and a touch of saline. The versatile, affordable, village Chablis from Domaine Christian Moreau Pere et Fils is bright and crisp, with the classic, taut structure and refreshing minerality that define traditional Chablis.
