Denne flotte lyse chardonnay, med et gulligt skær byder på en frugtig aroma med hvide blomster, som jasmine, og frugter som lemon og pære. Smagen har en behagelig syre med noter af grapefrugt og bergamot citus, men slutter balanceret af i et mineralsk og længevarende finish. Naturlig fedme fra chardonnay giver god mundfylde, selvom vinen kun har været lagret på ståltanke.
Perfekt match med lysere kød typer, fiske og skaldyrsretter, men er også en dejlig vin bare for sig selv.
Moreau & Fils blev grundlagt i 1814, da en ung mand ved navn Jean-Joseph Moreau slog sig ned i Chablis og giftede sig med en lokal vinhandlers datter. Efter i starten at have været en pioner i Chablis er vinhuset i dag en af de største og ældste producenter af Chablis-vine - kendt for deres store know-how og vinenes stil, der altid afspejler respekt for jorden. Vinene fra J. Moreau & Fils sælges i dag i over 80 lande verden over.
To create this cuvée, our viniculturist Lucie Depuydt used all her knowledge and expertise on terroirs. Her belief is that even outside the region of Chablis, the Chardonnay could grow in similar conditions and has to find deep in the soil what it can't get from the sun or the climate.
"Le Sans Bois" is the perfect example of J. Moreau & Fils savoir-faire in infusing its inimitable style through pure and mineral wines.
Grapes were sourced from selected mineral terroirs located in cool climate areas from different vinyards in France.
Vineyards were selected very carefully, trying to find similar features: vines growing in altitude (fresher climate), on well-draining soils able to have reasonable water stocks, giving in the end grapes with a specific balance between sugar and acidity.
Vinification and maturing
Grapes were harvested during the coldest hours of the day to keep their freshness. Once in the winery they were pressed for a long time in a pneumatic press in order to get a juice of the best quality. The device allows for a gentle extraction with a minimum exposure to oxidization. Then the juice was left to settle in stainless steel tanks and the roughest lies were removed.
For this wine, we aimed at getting a fast alcoholic fermentation to enhance all the fruity aromas of the Chardonnay. With the same purpose of getting bright fruit aromas, the malolactic fermentation was not completed so that we can still benefit from a lower acidity.
Finally, the wine was aged shortly in stainless steel tanks to keep all its freshness.
Visual: shiny pale gold.
Nose: intense and bright, with white flowers aromas (jasmine) and fruity notes of lemon and pear.
Palate: round attack emphasized by a lovely vivacity that lasts. Delightful grapefruit and bergamot flavour stand out, until a mineral and long lasting finale.
Food and wine pairing
Perfect with white meats, grilled fish and any kind of seafood. It can also be enjoyed as an aperitif.
Serve ideally between 12°and 14°C / 54°- 57°F
This wine was made to be enjoyed in its youth, but it can be kept for 2 years.
