Details

Alice and Olivier are well known for their pure, natural wines that they craft from small plots in Chablis, Chitry and the little known Saint Bris appellation. Their wines are highly sought-after in Paris and New York so we were delighted when they agreed to release some of their dwindling supplies for Australia.

They have been tending their organic vines near their village of Courgis for over twenty years now. Courgis lies north west of Dijon so it is quite a cold area leading to low yields from the vines. Both Alice and Olivier share the winemaking as they work together to craft these stunning wines.

All the grapes are picked by hand and only natural yeasts are used to ferment the wines which are matured in foudre and oak barrels that are typically one to four years old to ensure that the oak flavours do not dominate the fruit.

These wines sell out very quickly. We only get a limited allocation so there is a “de Moor season” where you are able to buy their wines.  But the season is short!

And just a note about Le Vendangeur Masqué on some of the labels. Over the past three or four years Alice and Olivier have been hit by frosts and hail on a number of occasions which has severely affected their harvests. They have therefore been forced to buy grapes from friends in the south so they have enough wine to survive. The grapes they buy always come from friends who grow the grapes organically and biodynamically and they apply their well-known winemaking skills to these grapes. However, in France if you buy grapes from other producers you must do it through a different company- hence the different name!

And by the way! The lovely art work on the labels is drawn by Olivier himself. Very talented!
