Vendangeur Masqué VDF "Caravan"
50% Riesling from Alsace + 50% Chardonnay from the Yonne. Vendangeur Masqué or “masked harvester” is the label for De Moor wines made from sourced fruit or rented vines. The blend for "Caravan" changes annually, the name referencing the travel of the various varieties into the hands of Alice and Olivier, who make the wines in their home cellar in Courgis. The fruit is harvested by hand, destemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tank. No sulfur is used at harvest or during vinification. The wine goes through malo naturally, is aged on its fine lees without bâtonnage in used foudre and is bottled in the spring following the harvest.
