The Wine:
Not all Petit Chablis is created equal! Moreau’s Petit Chablis comes from a single 2.5-hectare site between Courgis and Beine, just outside Chablis on the route to Auxerre. It has a southwest orientation and lies on Kimmeridgian soils (as opposed to the higher Portlandian soils on which most Petit is grown). Half of the plot is home to 25- to 30-year-old vines, while the other half is somewhat older at 45 to 50. The wine ferments spontaneously in large vats of 32 to 100 hectolitres.

This really has some gravitas and charisma for a Petit Chablis. Indeed, we’d go as far as to say that this release is not overshadowed by the Chablis proper. It’s immediately enticing, with golden kiwi and creamy pear fruit flecked by zingy sherbet and iodine notes. The palate is as seamless as you like, offering delicious puppy-fat succulence and vibrant clarity before finishing with palate-scraping freshness and chalky nuance. This is seriously classy.
