    Winemaker Notes

    100 % Chenin Blanc

    Golden in color, this wine has aromas with hints of apple and orange blossom. On the palate it is well-rounded with pear and honey suckle flavors. Serve well chilled as an aperitif, with spicy dishes, or with sweet-savoury combinations.

    J. Moreau & Fils has been a specialist of Chablis wines since 1814. It offers a wide selection, from the modest but refreshing Petit Chablis to the classic Chablis, the much sought-after Premiers Crus, such as Vaillons and Vaucoupin, to the seven prestigious Grands Crus.

    Every bottle, from the celebrated Grands Crus to simple and well-made table wines, carries J. Moreau & Fils' signature and must reflect their wine making philosophy based first and foremost on quality.

    Touraine, France

    An important white wine appellation in the Touraine and one of the top in all of the Loire, Vouvray uniquely specializes in a wide range of styles from dry to sweet, and still to sparkling, each with its own definitive character. Vouvray is almost always 100% Chenin blanc (however up to 5% Menu Pineau is theoretically allowed but not often used).

    Vouvray is also the name of a pretty little town just east of Tours on the northern bank of the Loire—its vineyards surround it to the northeast. Houses and cellars are carved out of the local tuffeau, a chalky or sandy, fine-grained limestone. Vineyards inhabit clay and gravel topsoil over tuffeau on the plateau, the best of which have a slight slope with a southerly aspect.

    Chenin blanc’s high acidity and natural adaptability allow it to produce a wide range of styles with enormous success. Styles under the Vouvray name include sparkling, both Brut and Demi-Sec and still: Sec (dry) and Tendre (off-dry) as well as Demi-Sec (noticeably sweet), Moelleux (very sweet) and Liquoreaux (botrytized). Most can age about five years but the best quality versions will continue to improve over decades.

    Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
