Viticulture

The Bourgogne Aligoté is made entirely from the Aligoté grape. The parcels of Bourgogne Aligoté are located mainly between Buxy and Saint-Gengoux-le-National, at the bottom of the hills. The soil is often covered with scree and rock, which allow the grapes to achieve full maturity. The grapes are grown in calcareous soil of the Côte Chalonnaise.

Soil

Limestone soils of Silex

Vinification

Grapes are crushed immeadiately following harvest, leaving only the grape juice to ferment. The making of Bourgogne Aligoté takes place entirely in stainless steel vats so as to preserve its freshness and liveliness.

Aging

Briefly in stainless steel
