Grape Variety : Aligoté.

Vineyard :

Site : the grapes originate from Burgundy, mainly Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Hautes Côtes de Nuits and Côte Châlonnaise. Histoire & tradition: the main grapes of Burgundy are Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but an ancient varietal called Aligot or Aligoté is preserved in a few parcels and cultivated with passion and care.

Soil : clay and limestone. The Aligoté grape is often planted in the same vineyards as Chardonnay (in the old days, it was not rare to have several varietals planted together).

Viticulture :

Plantation density : 10,000 vine stocks/hectare.

Pruning: Guyot.

Yield: 62 hl/ha, purposely low in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir

Vinification :

Supply: grapes and must purchased from regular suppliers.

Press : pneumatic press.

"Débourbage" : decanting of white wine to reduce sediment.

Ageing : Stainless-steel vats (5 to 7 months).

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin : "A wine that is always fresh and aromatic. The colour is pale yellow, with green reflections. On the nose, aromas of fresh grape, slightly acidic. Fresh on the palate, sometimes with a pleasant "gunflint" note. Good balance between softness and acidity".

Serving :

Temperature : 12/13°C (53-55°F).

Cellaring : 1 to 3 years.
