Site: the grapes originate from Burgundy, mainly Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Hautes Côtes de Nuits and Côte Châlonnaise.
History & tradition: the main grapes of Burgundy are Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but an ancient varietal called Aligot or Aligoté is preserved in a few parcels and cultivated with passion and care.
Soil: clay and limestone. The Aligoté grape is often planted in the same vineyards as Chardonnay (in the old days, it was not rare to have several varietals planted together).
by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
A wine that is always fresh and aromatic. The colour is pale yellow, with green reflections. On the nose, aromas of fresh grape, slightly acidic. Fresh on the palate, sometimes with a pleasant « gunflint » note. Good balance between softness and acidity.
The vagaries of the 2021 vintage have greatly affected yields, resulting in one of the smallest harvests Burgundy has ever seen. The whites are less opulent than previous vintages; they are well-balanced with lovely aromatics without excessive extravagance.Vintage review
Supply: this wine comes from grapes and musts purchased from supply partners according to rigorous specifications.
Harvest: grapes harvested by hands or with the grape harvester.
Vinification: pneumatic pressing, the whites go directly into vats after settling.
Ageing: the alcoholic fermentation and ageing are carried out in vats during 6 to 10 months.
Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
