De Moor - AOC Chablis L'humeur du temps 2018
De Moor's 'L’Humeur du Temps' is a pure, elegant and excellent wine produced by Domaine Alice and Olivier De Moor in the A.O.C Chablis, Burgundy, France. The grapes used in this cuvée come from a roughly 1 hectare, 25-year-old plot lying on limestone soils. Chardonnay and limestone are great bedfellows; texture like starshine. These wines are for those who chase that feeling of perfectly weighted wines, like those birds we used to balance on our fingers when young. Fleshy white peach, sheeps wool, soy candles and quince. Stunning.
Alice and Olivier De Moor set up their Domaine in the early '90s in Yonne, in southwest Chablis. They have under 10 hectares in the municipalities of Chitry, Saint-Bris-le-Vineux and Courgis, where they farm them all in accordance to Steiner's school of biodynamics. They do buy some fruit outside of Chablis and into Bourgogne, but only on poorer vintages.
