Alice and Olivier de Moor Chablis ‘l’Humeur du Temps’ 2019
'Like the Bel-Air et Clardys, this is a flinty, minerally, highly-textured Chardonnay from another of their vineyards which lie in the famous Chablis appellation. The vineyard is about 1 hectare.
For this vintage there were very few grapes picked from the l’Humeur du Temps vineyard so they have added some grapes from the Bel-Air vineyard that would normally go into the Bel-Air et Clardys.
The wine benefits from the limestone in which the vines thrive. This wine has all the characteristics that you expect of a good Chablis – it is flinty, elegant, energetic and very persistent.
It also exhibits a lovely mouth feel and texture. We like this wine a lot – it is made with love and care by Alice and Olivier in their winery near their house in Courgis.
Note that the label above is from a different vintage even though it is similar to the label for the current vintage. The issue is that we receive such a small allocation that they are all snapped up.'
