"Qu’est-ce que c’est is a new concept that we’re launching with this Aligote. “Qu’est-ce que c’est?” Translated means: What is it? What is that? What’s going on? Those are the questions we’re answering with this wine. Introducing consumers to grape varieties they may be unfamiliar with. Removing any possible trepidation by presenting the wine in a whimsical bottle designed to invite discovery. And what better partner for this quest then the venerable Moutard-Dilligent? The Moutard family has been making Champagne for the past 4 centuries. Francois Moutard and his two sisters, Agnes and Veronique, are fervent defenders of the family heritage. Never resting on their laurels, the family has ventured into Burgundy, a logical avenue for expansion given its proximity to Champagne and grape varietal mix. Moutard-Diligent is the result of a union in 1960 between Lucien Moutard and Josette Diligent, Francois’ parents. The Domaine Moutard-Diligent extends over 25 ha in Chablis and Tonnere. History, tradition and a commitment to unsurpassable quality define the domaine. Qu’est-ce que c’est Aligote? This is what it is!" - Importer
"From a single plot located in the village of Molosmes. A good farmer, Francois’ practices in the vineyard are sustainable. They make their own compost and use a hands off approach, allowing their carefully selected vineyard sites do most of the work. All the fruit is harvested by hand. Gentle pressing into stainless steel tanks. No additions, with the fermentation occurring naturally. Lees aging for 8 months prior to bottling. Bottled unfiltered with minimal fining without animal products(vegan.) The slight cloudiness to the wine is intentional, with such little intervention the true character of the Aligote is preserved." - Importer
