Highlights: De Moor Bourgogne Chitry 2018 France

Neighbouring the Chablis region, Chitry is a very interesting appellation with similar soils and climate, with the potential to make serious wines. It’s a small appellation with just 67 hectares of vines (40 white, 27 red) but as De Moor have shown with this wine, it deserves to be taken seriously. It’s from their own vines, planted 20 years ago, and it’s fermented and matured in a foudre.

De Moor Bourgogne Chitry 2018 France
13.5% alcohol. This has an amazing nose with bright citrus fruit and notes of brine and oyster shell. It’s so taut and fresh with lovely aromatic intensity. The palate is fine and saline with spice, green apples and crystalline citrus fruit, with a bit of richness in the middle of the palate, and a long spicy, tapered finish. It’s so thrilling and detailed with lovely intensity and a mineral streak. Great detail here. This is quite lovely. 94/100
