Louis MoreauChablis BourgogneDomaine Louis Moreau was born from the passion of a family that celebrates this year its 2 centuries of living in Chablis. As early as the late 19th century, the love of this family for great wines led to the purchase of plots in Grands Crus and Premiers Crus.
Nowadays, proprietor of parcels in 5 of the Grands Crus, including a monopole, the domaine works many plots within the appellations of Petit Chablis, Chablis and Premiers Crus, in full harmony with the environment.
The most prestigious of its wines is the monopole Chablis Grand Cru Clos des Hospices dans Les Clos, which was acquired by the Moreau family in 1904. Louis Moreau, who has been head of the domaine since 1994, produces wines with a unique style, combining minerality, fineness, elegance and purity.


PHILOSOPHY

Louis represents the sixth genereation of the Moreau family linked to the Chablis vineyard destiny since 1814. He has been head of the family business since 1994, succeeding to his father Jean-Jacques who had also created the negociant house J.Moreau & Fils en the 70’s. This company was sold years ago and has nothing to do with the Moreau family and vineyard since then.
Louis studied at Fresno State University California, where he obtained a degree in oenology-viticulture. Afterwards, he worked for various American and French wineries in California, before coming back to take care of the family vineyards.
Louis places great emphasis on cultivating the vine with great respect for the environment. He always seeks for the most natural solution in order to ensure the quality of his vines and grapes. An important aspect of this work is done to ensure that the plants can grow properly, struggling by themselves against external pressures. Moreover, the results of such methods are a total control of the yield.
Louis collaborates closely in the area of nursery research with the most important domains in Burgundy with a view to improving the quality of his vines. He particularly focuses his research on massal selections of the most robust vine plants in “Vieilles Vignes” of the domain (mainly in Premiers Crus and Grands Crus) in order to make the most of all the terroirs.
All year long, Louis practices high quality methods, ending with handpicked harvests, followed by small volumes transport to the winery and the use of a sorting table. Chablis & Chablis 1ers Crus are vinified in stainless still tanks to retain all their minerality & their fineness. On the other hand, the powerful & the richness of the Chablis Grands Crus encourage judicious use of oak barrels for a harmonious development.
