Alice et Olivier de Moor

When Alice and Olivier met in Chablis in the late '80s the wine world was very different. Chablis, like much of France, was churning out industrial wine that was drinkable but rarely interesting or unique. Farming was chemically enhanced, with the purveying philosophy of throw whatever you want into the vineyard.

The De Moors went in a completely different directection when the planted their first vineyard in 1989. They farmed organically, eschewing chemicals of any kind, and worked with a deft, light touch in the cellar in order to allow their special terroir to shine through.

30 years later they are now a well established, top tier producer in the world of natural wine and beyond. While much of Chablis is still produced with an industrial bent, there are now dozens of producers who farm organically and aim to produce interesting, terroir driven wines. The De Moors can certainly take some credit for helping to start this renaissance.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"The 2018 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru spent one year in foudres and barrel before transferring into tanks; it was due for bottling in September or October. It has a light candle wax and white chocolate bouquet, a little more backward than the Vau de Vey. The palate is well balanced with lime and citrus lemon, touches of grapefruit and a welcome bitter edge enlivening the finish. Great persistence. This is a potentially brilliant Mont de Milieu in the context of the growing season." -Vinous
