2016 Domaine Louis Moreau Petit Chablis

SKU #1317977

Husband-and-wife team Louis and Anne Moreau pretty much do it all here, from the moment the grapes hit the door of their winemaking facility. Louis got his degree in enology from Fresno State and worked for several California wineries before coming home to take over the winery from his father. We have a strong trio of wines from Louis Moreau.

With the frosts in the early part of 2016, the crop was reduced drastically, but what wine were made from this vintage are phenomenal. This little Chablis is still young, but has all the classic character that you are looking for in such a wine. Crisp, focused, and mineral-laden, the wine is more structured than 2015, and more representative of the area. This is the perfect shellfish wine, and for those of you in search of your crab pairing, you need look no further.

This is a great daily sipper that will not disappoint. Despite the name there is nothing little about it - plenty of tart, citrus flavors and very vibrant acidity pop upfront and the finish is long. Petit Chablis is not inferior to Chablis -the difference is simply in the soil type and exposure to sunshine (terroir!). If you're looking for one with more texture and richer fruit this won't be your wine. BUT if you're looking for fresh, crisp, clean and easy drinking, this Petit Chablis should be your choice.

This Chardonnay is crisp and stylish with lovely flowery fruit and plenty of depth, energy and concentration underneath and a very long finish. Love this Petit Chablis and white Burgundies at affordable prices!

The 2016 Petit Chablis from Louis Moreau is a Direct Import for K&L, and one of the greatest value whites carried here. Pressed from grapes from younger hillside vines, this light-bodied wine displays barely palpable waxy aromas of orange blossom and lemon, and a distinct, chalky minerality. The palate is very well balanced, with bright but well-integrated acidity, and the finish is long and tapered.

A stellar value, the Petite Chablis is loaded with bright citrus fruit notes, wet stone and hints of seashells.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, M√Ęcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Chablis

- The region north of the Cote d'Or, famous for its steely dry white wines made from Chardonnay. There are 7 Grands Crus vineyards, and numerous Premier Crus. Unfortunately, the name has been borrowed and badly abused by producers of inferior white wines in the US as well as in Australia. True French Chablis is a delicate, stony, crisp Chardonnay, bearing no resemblance to the anonymous plonk so labeled here.
