Chablis isn't a region where we invoke the term 'trends' often. There's a timelessness to the style and the region. It's isolated from the rest of Burgundy. Winemaking remains traditional across the board. It's rare for a young producer to make a dent in the established hierarchy of Dauvissat and Raveneau worship, but Stéphane Moreau had done just that. The wines had converted a magical quality of density without weight while still communicating pure Chablisienne oyster-shell minerality. Alas, we lost Stéphane in 2016 at far too young an age. The 2015s on offer today remain his last vintage, while his wife Virginie and assistant winemaker continue the legacy he began with resounding success. The house style is dense and textured. He was never afraid of ripeness, arguing that the flinty, lean norm for Chablis was a result of mechanical harvesting and high yields rather than quality. Prior to the pandemic, these would be allocated, sought after wines for all the top restaurants in town. So I ask myself, why are these still here?
