|Chablis Coteau de Rosette
“The 2020 Chablis Coteau de Rosette is a blend of barrel and foudres; it's blended after a year depending on the levels of residual. The bouquet is fresh but more backward than the Bel-Air et Clardy and with more conspicuous lime aromas. The palate is well balanced with quite a penetrating entry thanks to the lower pH; the 2020 is fresh and tensile with a twist of bitter lemon on the finish. Fine length here, it's begging for some fresh oysters.

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.
