De Moor L Humeur Du Temps Chablis 2019
100% Chardonnay. The name tells the story: “the mood of the times (or weather)” indicates that it’s the de Moors’ way to capture the nature of the vintage as a whole. It comes from 3-4 estate parcels in and around Courgis that thede Moors planted beginning in 1995. The farming is certified-organic and the harvest by hand. The fruit is destemmed, gently pressed and fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts; the parcels are vinified separately. The wine goes through malo and is aged on its lees without bâtonnage or racking in a combination of used Burgundy barrels and 2500-liter foudres as well as enamel-lined steel tanks for almost a year. Bottling is without fining or filtering and is the only point at which a touch of sulfur is added to the wine.
