This special Aligoté is well structured, with hints of peaches. The acidity is light and the wine very fresh and lively and not too tannic. Bouzeron is a rather new appellation dating back to 1998, only producing white wine with the Aligoté grape. It is the only identified place in Burgundy where a village appellation is produced with the Aligoté grape (a crossing of gouais and pinot noir).
Bouzeron is a small village located in the Côte Chalonnaise next to Rully. The size of the appellation is very small: 47 ha.
A season of extreme summer temperatures and one of the hottest and sunniest on record which led to lower yields. However, whilst yields are low, the quality and concentration is outstanding, with wines of great character.
Fermentation and vinification take place in stainless steel tanks. This wine is aged in large oak barrels (30% new) and bottled one year after vintage.
