"Aromas and flavours of citrus then apple, as the wine opens out in glass the hallmarks of Chablis begin to emerge with a mineral core, some chamomile tea, oyster shell and white flowers. A silky texture touches the palate first then acidity builds contrast with each new sip. Flavours of fruit and mineral reflect the bouquet leading to a finer finish. Balanced, well made and ready to drink from 2024 through 2028+."
 - Cameron Douglas MS

“Beautifully composed and poised, making it highly appealing.”
- Sam Kim

This cuvée “Gloire de Chablis” is a tribute to the relics of Saint-Martin formerly protected and honored in the ancient Monastery of St-Loup in Chablis. Located just outside the village and specialists in the wines of Chablis since 1814, J. Moreau & Fils has built its reputation on respect for the terroir and works 300 individual vineyard plots.

Located in the north of Burgundy, in Yonne department, the appellation stretches over around 20 communes that cover the hillsides running alongside the pretty Serein Valley. The vineyard enjoys an exceptional geological situation. The main bedrock comes from the Jurassic epoch, or more precisely the Kimmeridgean age (150 million years ago). Deposits of tiny oysters can still be found today in the rock, remains of a time when the sea was covering this territory. Chablis was named after the Latin "caplum", which means "ford". The vineyards were developed in the 3rd century, under the Roman Emperor Probus. Then the major expansion of Chablis was down to the Cistercian Monks of the Abbey of Pontigny in the 12th century. However, by the end of the 19th century, phylloxera destroyed the entire vineyard, which explains the ‘recent’ introduction of the Chardonnay varietal.

Bone-dry white Burgundy from Chablis’ most famous house. Classic Chablis flintiness with no oak ageing.
