About the Wine
This lovely white wine produced by J. Moreau et Fils is crafted in the Chablis area of Burgundy. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark so you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 150cl magnum size bottles, distributed in the UK by J Moreau et Fils. J. Moreau & Fils Chablis is an interesting wine, made from Chardonnay grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. 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.
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
