Le Vendangeur - Masque AOC Bourgogne Blanc
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 only a small amount come to Australia. They are stunning, almost perfect examples of what Chardonnay can be.
Once again, due to the ravages of the frosts and hail the De Moors have been forced to buy certified (by Ecocert) organic grapes from friends in Burgundy to produce this delightful white wine. This is a lovely Burgundy produced from grapes that have grown on very good clay and limestone terroir. The wine spent 12 months in old barrels before being transferred to tanks for settling prior to bottling. It sits like honey, surrounded by magnolia, polite bites of cheese; almost sashimi like in texture; soft but generous. This wine is like late spring afternoons, bottled.
