Bourgogne Aligoté Vieilles Vignes
comes from two plots, both with 55-year-old Aligoté vines, one in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis (a plot of 0.43 hectare / ≈ 1 acre) and the other in Couchey (0.51 hectare / ≈ 1.25 acres). Made from fully ripe grapes, Bourgogne Aligoté Vieilles Vignes
develops plenty of taste, with notes of curry, citrus fruits, and white fruits, and then a pleasant freshness on the finish.
It is a wine to serve with a meal, which you can drink in its youth, or keep for 5 years or more.
Ageing lasts for 12 to 18 months, half in 600-litre oak barrels, and half in stainless steel tanks to preserve its freshness.
Ideal as an aperitif, it will accompany a fish stew, shellfish with lime, terrine, jambon persillé
(jellied parsley ham), snails, and all forms of parsley garnishes.
