Stéphane Moreau has some very well-placed vines, and he is obviously influenced by Vincent Dauvissat, who recommended him to us. Superhuman work has been done in the vineyards to bring yields under control, pressing technology has been brought up to date, and harvesting is by hand (sadly rare in Chablis, if not amongst the growers we work with). In the cellar he uses barrel-élevage on his premier crus only, but not in such a way that oakiness could be detected in the wines. He also keeps the wines for a much longer period on the lees than most in order for them to gain more complexity and flesh. In the vineyard Stéphane refuses to spray weed killers or any treatments against rot, and for the past decade has only used organic fertliers in small doses.
