De Moor Aligoté is a natural, single varietal Aligoté white wine made by Domaine Alice & Olivier De Moor in the A.O.C Bourgogne Aligoté, in Burgundy, France.
The Aligoté variety is the second most common Burgundy white grape behind Chardonnay, but when cultivated well it can result in wonderful wines like this De Moor Aligoté which is made with clusters from characteristic Chablis plots with calcareous soils. The harvest is carried out manually and in small boxes to preserve the integrity of the grapes as they are transported to the winery.
The grapes ferment with their native yeasts and the resulting wine ages in foudres and oak barrels that are generally between one and four years old. This means the wood does not overshadow the fruity character of the wines.
At Domaine Alice & Olivier De Moor, they have been growing their vines organically since 2005, which is rare in this area. In 2007 Alice and Olivier built a winery that allows them to work with gravity. No SO2 or chemicals are used at harvest or during the winemaking process. They have been cultivating their vineyards organically for more than 20 years and they are true stars in Chablis. They care so much about their vineyards and their wines that even the labels are drawn by Olivier himself.
De Moor Aligoté is an honest and elegant wine that has received high praise from around the world.
