Aligoté must explode on your tongue; it must wake up your taste buds and make you salivate. 50% from Chamilly, 50% from Buxy. Who does not know a good Aligoté does not know Burgundy !
Harvest and grape selection done by hand and transported in small boxes to the cellar.
The ‘must’ is racked after settling for 12 to 24 hours. The fermentation is temperature controlled.
Fermentation and ageing is done in Burgundian oak barrels. The wine is filtered before bottling.
Food and Wines pairing :
