Wine from Alice & Olivier De Moor in their Vendangeur Masque guise - the name they make wine under when using grapes from outside their domaine in Chablis. Caravan 2019 sees them using grapes from other parts of Burgundy, plus the added geographical outlier of a percentage of Alsatian Riesling, adding a different line of acidity, extra flesh to the texture and some lovely aromatic elements. De Moor most certainly have a style, and that is something akin to a perfectly crisp white tablecloth with all the place settings positioned at perfect angles; here they apply those methods to a more far-reaching selection of grapes. The results offer incredible bang for buck.
Alice & Olivier De Moor are pioneers under the Chablis appellation - one of the first producers to break from standardised tradition to create truly expressive wines in this highly regarded, fair to say household name, of Burgundy. The vineyard work is organic with the grapes all picked by hand. Following spontaneous fermentation the wines are left to rest adequately before bottling, and nothing is added or removed at all, bar a tiny addition of sulphites in the very final stages. It goes without saying that our reserves of De Moor are on the small side! Don't miss out.
