*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

One of my favourite Chablis producers. Not only is this wine a goo buy, but they always have great labels, which really stand out next to the rest. This one has tangy lemon and grapefruit flavours pepped up with a rounder, buttery warmth. Cool yet classic.

RIP Stéphane, you will be missed. Our deepest condolences go out to all your family and friends.

Stéphane Moreau, is not related to the other Chablis Moreaus. His father was from Brittany, and that it is from his mother's Naudet side of the family that he has inherited his sizeable (22 hectare) domaine of very well-placed vines.

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 (no herbicides or anti fungal treatments are used), 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, but not in such a way that oakiness can readily be detected in the wines (all his barrels are steamed rather than charred and he uses no new oak except for in the straight Chablis, and then only one barrel per 100hl in order to age it prior to using for the Premiers Crus).

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.

This wine isn't currently part of a mixed case, but you can always browse our full selection of mixed cases here.
