Bourgogne Aligoté

The Aligoté is a very ancient grape variety in Burgundy, recognizable by it's large and compact leaves. The grapes are bigger and more abundant compared to the Chardonnay. Bourgogne Aligoté is grown on the hillsides facing the Hautes-Côtes, the ground here is marly and the soil shallow.

White wines vinification : we bring in the grapes in small crates to keep them intact. The pressing is carried out with a pneumatic press which is less damaging to the grapes. The whole grapes are placed in the press and the pressing lasts for two hours. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in tanks. The fermentation lasts for about 15 days at low temperatures (18 à 20°C) in order to preserve the fruit aromas.

The Aligoté produces a white wine of a very pale golden colour with green high-lights ; when swirled it reveals a superb aroma of white flowers and newly mown hay. Slightly mineral tones can be detected on the nose. The attack on the palate is charming, offering immediate pleasure. «It will coax any Burgundy-snail out of the shell» to it's place at the table.

The Aligoté goes well with charcuterie, salad, sea-food and andouillette-sausages. It is also perfect as an aperitif with golden gougères cheese-pastries or mixed with cassis, black-currant liquor, to obtain the famous kir.
