The Moreau family has been settled in Chablis since 1814 and today, Louis represents the 6th generation. In the heart of Chablis, in Burgundy, Louis Moreau produces and sells exceptional wines, worldwide recognized. Planted 100% with Chardonnay grape variety, on the unique terroir of Chablis, the vines of Domaines Louis Moreau are spread over the 4 levels of the appellation: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis 1er Crus and Chablis Grands Crus.

Grand Cru Les Clos is the most renowned of the 7 Chablis Grands Crus. It produces straight but yet generous and powerful wines. Its bouquet is mineral, which gives to the wine lot of elegance while the mouth expresses delicate notes of almond and pear. The finish is full and long-lasting.

Platinum Best in Show Decanter World Wine Awards 2019* 100% Chardonnay Tasting notes: Pale gold in colour, this commanding Chablis Grand Cru from the great site of Les Clos is everything Chablis-lovers could want. The site is so good, indeed, that its wines often take some time to evolve both aromatically and on the palate, but the supple, summer-meadow warmth of the aromas of this wine and its width and amplitude in the mouth suggest it has already set out satisfyingly down the evolutionary track. The balance with the wine's inherently stony tension, though, is impressively achieved, too: a complete yet approachable Les Clos.

The white peaches and nectarines are underpinned by lemons and yellow grapefruit on the nose. The palate has a very rich and attractive feel with a fleshy and layered ascent to the long, full and fluid finish. The fruit holds and holds. The minerals come eventually. This is exceptional. Try from 2025. Date Tasted: Aug 2019; Rating: 97 Points; James Suckling

Even with the advantage of frost protection, Moreau only achieved yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare with his 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, but it was enough to mature half of the cuvée in tank and half in barrel. The wine unwinds slowly in the glass with aromas of wheat toast, beeswax, green apple, ripe citrus fruits and almond paste, followed by a full-bodied, satiny and racy palate that's quite taut and fine-boned, with a penetrating, chalky finish. 

The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru is a gorgeous, sophisticated wine. Exotic white flowers, mint, citrus and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that lift from the glass in a vivid, striking Chablis that speaks to finesse more than anything else. The intensity of the flavors is just remarkable, and yet the wine is light on its feet, gracious and incredibly inviting. The brisk, refreshing finish is sublime.
