About the Wine
This delightful white Wine by J. Moreau et Fils is grown in the Chablis area of Burgundy. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark, you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 150cl magnum size bottles, distributed in the UK by J Moreau et Fils. Chablis, J. Moreau & Fils is an inspired wine, made from Chardonnay grapes. This wine has a cork closure and is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Mouth-watering and minerally Chablis is perfect with simply prepared seafood, chicken and salads.
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.
Following on from a fantastic vintage the year before, French vineyards endured a mixed bag of weather conditions in the early part of the growing season followed by a long, hot summer which produced some memorable wines, even to rival to the excellence of the previous year.Explore France
