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.
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!
Chitry is a white wine appellation that lies adjacent to the Chablis appellation and shares with it the wonderful limestone terroir.
Those in the know snap up this wine as it has all the characteristics of a Chablis but at a lower price. It is a pure Chardonnay and is classified as a Burgundy Village wine (the village being Chitry). The 2018 is a particular good vintage in Chitry even though the season was fairly difficult.
