Alice et Olivia de Moor Vendangeur Masque VDF Rouge Chenagre 2021
100% Grenache. Vendangeur Masqué or “masked harvester” is the label for De Moor wines made mainly from sourced fruit; the wines are made in the De Moor cellar in Courgis in the same manner as their estate wines. The exact make-up of the single de Moor/Vendangeur red changes from year to year but tends to be very pale in color and light in weight and tannin, in the vein of a Jura-style red. In 2021, the De Moors sourced organically farmed Grenache from the Luberon region of Provence (the name of the wine is an anagram of the variety). The fruit is destemmed, gently pressed and co-fermented spontaneously with native yeasts in tank. Bottling is without fining or flitering almost a year after harvest and is the only time a touch of sulfur is added to the wine.
