Nothing "little" about it!

Ever wonder what the difference is between Chablis and Petit Chablis? Hint: Petit Chablis is not “lesser Chablis!” Petit Chablis is a wine region that is, in part, defined by Portlandian soil which is a different subsoil than that of Chablis proper. The vineyard location, variable landscape and weathered limestone soil results in wines that are lighter, fresher and more easy-going. Stéphane Moreau took the reins of his family Domaine in the 1990’s and inspired by cult winemaker, Vincent Dauvissat (who helped him design the unconventional label), lifted it to the top echelon of Chablis Domaines over a period of nearly two decades. Stéphane passed away suddenly before the 2016 vintage and his life’s work is now in the hands of his wife, Virginie, who is committed to his vision. Adored by critics, the wines are harmonious and full of character. In this bottling you’ll find a great deal of richness with flavors of apricot, white flowers, and a pop of lemon zest. In many cases, Petit Chablis is a better choice for simple dishes…and is definitely great as an aperitif. So go forth and drink Petit Chablis with pride!
