|Chablis 1er Cru Vau de Vey
“The 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Vau de Vey 1er Cru, from mainly marn soils, raised in four demi-muids for 15 months after which is transferred into vat, was showing a little more reduction on the nose than de Moor's other cuvées. The palate is very well balanced with a steely line of acidity that lends this Vau de Vey superb linearity; it is quite persistent with a saline finish. This will need cellaring if you want to see it in full flight.
Drink 2025-2040. 94/100” Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media
Alice and Olivier de Moor live and work in Courgis, a small village 7km southwest of Chablis. It is where Olivier grew up, and his “old” cellar, the part where he ages his Chablis in oak barrels, is underneath his grandparents’ house. From the hill where Courgis sits, the view is of vineyards over hills all the way to the Chablis Grands Crus.
Olivier says the landscape has changed a lot in his lifetime, that all the woods, bushes and fallow land that dotted the hills have disappeared in favor of vines.
Alice is from the Jura, and the two met at a large Chablis estate where Olivier was in charge of the vineyards. Both are enologists, graduates of the Dijon enological school, with enough knowledge to take a radically different direction for their vines and wines than their neighbors. While the division of labor principally consists of Olivier in the vines and Alice in the cellar and office, both are equally omnipresent in every role and all decisions are made together.
