Bouzeron Blanc 2020
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 vintage of excellent quality, which started early thanks to a warm spring and early summer, with some very hot whether in July and August. Pinot Noir in particular had small berries, but beautifully concentrated and Chardonnay managed to hold its acidity.
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.
