This is a flinty, minerally, highly-textured Chardonnay from their vineyard called Clardys which lies in the famous Chablis appellation. The wine benefits from the limestone in which the vines thrive. The Clardys sits alongside the Rosettes as one of the de Moor’s top wines. - Importer Note
Alice and Olivier are well known for their pure, natural wines that they craft from small plots in Chablis, Chitry and the little known Saint Bris appellation. Their wines are highly sought-after in Paris and New York so we were delighted when they agreed to release some of their dwindling supplies for Australia.
They have been tending their organic vines near their village of Courgis for over twenty years now. Courgis lies north west of Dijon so it is quite a cold area leading to low yields from the vines. Both Alice and Olivier share the winemaking as they work together to craft these stunning wines.
All the grapes are picked by hand and only natural yeasts are used to ferment the wines which are matured in foudre and oak barrels that are typically one to four years old to ensure that the oak flavours do not dominate the fruit.
These wines sell out very quickly. We only get a limited allocation so there is a 'de Moor season " where you are able to buy their wines. But the season is short! - Importer Note
