Third magnum: no rush in this format at all. Day 1, precise, still tight, modest fruit peering out; tastes like a good light white Burg but hard to say whether young or old. Second day, more mineral and swamp water, sea breeze - intense petit Chablis profile with terrific tension and acidity. I'm not an Galloni acolyte, but I think he frames the de Moor wines well: understated overachievers with surprisingly refined wines, at least in every appellation I've sampled. A good source; you could hardly have too much of their wines, especially because they age so well (this is a 6-year-old Chitry from a 'fat' year!).
This wine is voluminous out of the gates on the nose and palate, lots of everything, with relatively burly tannins, almost but not quite unruly. With time, it settles down and presents a slightly more refined profile with good ingredients pretty well-mixed. Retains slight but wholesome rusticity throughout, and didn't tire over two nights of drinking. My feeling was that this bottle was just getting into secondary fruit and has considerable developmental potential ahead, which may give it more complexity, considering the vineyard origin. Much more pleasurable to drink now than I'd expect from a good 1er 2005. Drink cool and with food - the ample tannins would pair better with red meat dishes than is often the case with red Burgundy.
