de moor – 2007 chablis

de-moor-chablis-2007

Hmm – wacky packaging – I love it, right down to its seal of blue wax! I hear it may be be made with almost no sulfur – lucky it’s still winter then, I hope it passed the last months nice and cool…

2007 de Moor, Chablis Humeur Du Temps
Medium, medium pale yellow. Aromatically a little narrow – but no worry – there are heights and depths here, just a little agrumes at the core. In the mouth this seems a bit slight and acid-led for the first sip, thereafter I really warmed to it; borderline acidic yet coupled to super intensity for such a basic level. Slowly the flavours of flint and rock take on a yellow-fruited accent. Narrow entry, wider in the mid-palate I find this at a similar quality level to some 1er crus. Perhaps the zinging acidity is better-suited to the summer months – but yum!
Rebuy – Yes
