Fabien, 6ième génération de vigneron, après avoir obtenu son Diplôme National d'œnologue à Dijon et un Master de Gestion à l'E.N.I.T.A de Bordeaux, est parti 1 an en Nouvelle Zélande pour les vinifications 2001.

Fabien, a member of the sixth generation of the family to be involved in winemaking, obtained his National Degree in Oenology in Dijon and a Masters in Business Administration at the E.N.I.T.A in Bordeaux.
He then went to New Zealand for a year to study the country's winemaking practices. In December 2001, Fabien returned to Chablis and took over as Managing Director and Head Winemaker at the Domaine Christian MOREAU Pere et Fils.
Millésima-usa.com This domaine, owned and managed by well-known Chablisien Christian Moreau and his son Fabien - who serves as cellar master - is making some of the finest wines in Chablis. The estate was formed in 2001 as an independent operation benefiting from Christian's share of the family's extensive vineyard holdings in such grands crus as Les Clos, Vaudésir, Blanchot and Valmur. Vines average 45 years of age across these sites, and each parcel is hand harvested and vinification takes place in tank. Ageing is carried out partially in older barrels as a rule. This magnificent 2005 Valmur, still young and with a long life ahead, has superb richness along with a frame of ripe acidity. Saying that it is "a wine of obvious class and grace," Burghound scored it a "92".
