Chablis Coteau de Rosette Alice et Olivier De Moor Information
About the domain
Although Alice (from the Jura) and Olivier (from Burgundy) De Moor export most of their production, they have over the years forged an excellent reputation for themselves. Their wines have been certified organic (Ecocert) for 10 years. With low yields, manual harvests and very little sulfur used, these two winemakers visibly work with meticulous care both in their viticulture and vinifications. The 2009 vintage marked their first year running a small négociant business on the side, in the Chablis and Chablis Premier Cru appellations.
About the cuvée
Simply known as “Rosette” until 2010, this cuvée is named after a hectare of clay-limestone soil in the Courgis area. The vines are farmed following biodynamic principles and the grapes are harvested late. The domain also favours natural vinifications, with long fermentations in barrels on fine lees. The wine is then matured in 225-litre barrels for 11 months. The wine has a very fruity nose and is deliciously rich on the palate. There are intense, lingering notes and candied fruits.

General : The «bio» designation covers certified wines produced by biodynamic or organic methods, sustainably produced wines, and «environmentally friendly» wines that are not officially certified. These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
