About the Wine
This white wine is made by J. Moreau et Fils in Burgundy. Mouth-watering and minerally Chablis is perfect with simply prepared seafood, chicken and salads. It is created with mosty Chardonnay grapes. You shouldn't find this wine anywhere else, it is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by J. Moreau et Fils.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.

In 1814, Jean-Joseph Moreau, a young cooper fell in love with the daughter of a local winemaker, giving birth to J.Moreau & Fils one of the oldest houses in Chablis. Today, it's led by Lucie Depuydt, born and raised in Chablis’ vineyard. 150 million years ago, the area was under the ocean, so it has distinctive soils, rich in oyster’s fossils. This history combined with the cool climate of the region produces crisp, mineral wines. It helps to explain why the wine pairs so well with seafood.
Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
