Alice and Olivier de Moor are qualified oenologists relatively new to the world of wine, having planted their first vines on their 6-hectare estate in 1988. They prune the vines hard to prodice yields some 20% less than the permitted maximum and hand-harvest the entire crop. The wines are fermented in 10 year-old casks, using wild yeast, followed by a further 10 months elevage on the fine lees. They are bottled in the 15th month without cold stabilisation of filtration, but undergo a slight fining. The Chablis Bel-Air et Clardys is a blend of 2 lieux-dits planted with 12 year-old vines, with 25 centimetres of humus and limestone sub-soil. The Moors' top Chablis cuvée, La Rosette, is from a lieu-dit alongside 1er Les Beauregards, and enjoys classic Kimmeridgean limestone soil and very low yields.
Fresh bright colour, very elegant nose with the usual sense of de Moor muscle behind. Never a question of dilution here! Fine, fresh, mineral thread at the back, very satisfying, good flesh, excellent length. A wine to savour and which could cope with chicken as well as oysters. Drink 2015-2018.

Smoke and oysters on the nose, followed by fine linear fruit with a backing of oak. This still needs a little longer to settle down, but will grow into a typically de Moorish iconoclastic wine. Drink 2015-2018. Jasper Morris MW, Burgundy Wine Director
