Description

Les Pargues is a Chablis lieu-dit situated on a ridge between Montmains and Vosgros. It has the same exposure as the 1er Crus of Vaillons and Montmains, so it’s a very handy site. The story goes that this site was originally classified as a 1er Cru level vineyard (pre-AOC), before being largely abandoned during WWI (when there was a labour shortage). Regardless of this story, locals rightly speak very highly of this site. The vines in Moreau’s tiny parcel average 50-plus years old and 15-25 hl/ha is the normal yield.

Ripe aromas of pear, apple, lemon zest and floral nuances also reflect a background hint of volatile acidity. The extraordinarily rich medium-bodied flavors possess a succulent and round texture while the markedly saline and ever-so-mildly warm finish is noticeably drier if not necessarily longer.
