Product Description:

"100% Aligoté – after Chardonnay, Aligoté is the second most planted white variety in Burgundy – from mainly clay soils. The grapes come from parcels located in the regional area production of Meursault, from estate vineyards conducted in biodynamie. The 70 year old vines are Guyot pruned. The grapes are hand-harvested and sorted. They are lightly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put into 500l French oak casks (no new oak) for both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts. It is aged for 10 months, with stirring of the lees. A month before bottling, the different barrels are blended into a stainless steel tank. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered, and bottling happens on a “fruit day”, following the lunar calendar. Both mineral and rich mouth." - Importer
