A deep knowledge of the soils and subsoils in Chablis allows J.MOREAU & Fils to identify the shade and character in each terroir, to reveal all its richness and complexity with each new vintage.

Faithful to its origins and culture, the house ages all of its wines with patience: a day in the cellar is as important as one day in the vineyards. The House J. MOREAU & Fils has put its name to great Chablis wines since 1814.

Vinification and maturing

Initial cold maceration is followed by a progressive increase in temperature up to 30°C. (86°F.).
Extraction is obtained through punching of the cap and pumping over of the must.
The grapes are pressed and the free-run and press juices are blended and allowed to macerate.
A quarter of the wine is transferred to barrels of varying degrees of toast to lend sucrosity, length, toasted aromas.

History

The Yonne area used to be the largest vineyard in France. Over 300 boats, called the “Coches d’Eau” shipped tavern wines to Paris. With reference to this historical tradition, the “Les Coches” range is a collection of wines resulting from a meticulous selection, ageing and blending work fully expressing the house style and values of J.MOREAU & Fils since 1814.
