Sometimes, it’s the challenging vintages that really solidify the reputation of a quality producer. This is a clear example. The roundness of the warm vintage is present, but so is the familiar acid tension playing in the background. Lemon pulp, sea breeze, chalk aromas. Mineral notes are not overshadowed by the weight, finish is crisp, lingering, with toasty briny notes well suited for fish and fried food pairings. Lots of effort and crucial correct decisions were made to produce this wine.

Really awesome Chablis. In a richer style, which is further amped up by the warm vintage, yet still has that bracing, sea-spray Chablis-ness to satisfy the itch for racy salinity that you want a good Chablis to be able to scratch. Pours a bright medium (-) gold hue. High concentration of aromatics of slightly bruised green apple, lemon curd, saline sea spray, wet stone and crushed oyster shell, dogwood floral notes, fresh brioche dough and aged cheese rind leesiness, crème fraîche, and a slight fennel spice. On the palate, there's more perfectly ripe green apple, lemon curd, saline oyster shell and wet stone minerality, aged cheese rind, and crème fraîche. High acid, bone dry, medium (-) body but with a rich oily texture. Moderate, in-balance alcohol. Great length on the palate. Wonderful complexity. Would take well to a short-to-medium term cellaring but is honestly so delicious and generous now, too. Definitely want to seek out more Chablis from the De Moors.
