Tasting Notes

The Bouzeron appellation is relatively new and is the name for wines coming from the southern area of Burgundy known as the Côte Chalonnaise. Always made from the Aligoté grape, this particular bottle is especially appealing due richness given by the partial aging in French oak Barrels.

Staff Pick Notes

Wines that express duality are incredible, and one at a reasonable price all the more so. An example is Bouzeron, the only AOC devoted entirely to Burgundy's second white grape Aligote. Situated due south of the Cote de Beaune (Chassagne Montrachet is a few km north) it yearns for higher regard. Plenty can be said about Aligote's neglected place in wine history - traditionally thought of as simple and an ingredient in the Kir cocktail- yet another way to look at it is the enormous potential. And wine makers in Burgundy have taken notice and treated it as it's own. Aligote has a lively mineral expression, and this comes through beautifully from vineyards planted in the limestone clay soils of Bouzeron. This pure minerality is layered with hints of cream and spices from 12 months oak aging. A satisfyingly fresh combination.
