Tasting Notes

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.

    There is nothing petit about this wine except the price. While not coming from the heart of Chablis, this wine delivers everything that you want from the non-petit version. Crisp mineral drive wine with cool yellow fruits. A wine to reach for, for almost any occasion.

    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.

    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.
