Family owned for 7 generations and totalling 13 hectare this estate is now run by a brother/sister team that have adopted organics and some modern techniques to get the most out of their vineyards.
Green apple, mealy, earth and mineral. Lean acid, nice texture and really drinkable. One of the few charming Aligote I’ve had the pleasure of drinking. Goes well with briney fish. No need to age.
Aligote – A variety that shares the same parent as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir but not their glorious outlook on wine. Making mealy, lean, mineral and citric wines that tend to lack fruit. There is no great Aligote, perhaps because the best terroirs are planted to Chardonnay.
Burgundy – The classic part of Burgundy known as the Cote D’Or (the slope of gold) is essentially one vineyard that is 60km long and maybe 5km at its widest. From this limestone ridge some of the most complex, long-lived and aromatic wines are produced from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Cistercian monks who owned the land codified the entire region and so each small plot has a name.
