BOURGOGNE ALIGOTE

A.O.C. (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée)

Surface 0.29ha

Name   En Coulézin

Varietal   100% Aligoté

Colour   White

Terroir    Marls and Clay

Exposure North South

VINIFICATION / MATURING

Manual harvesting in boxes; these are emptied directly onto a sorting table, where sorters remove foreign bodies and possibly the least appealing grapes before passing onto a vibrating sorting table. A conveyor belt then transports the harvest to the press. Since the 2016 vintage, the vinification has been done without sulfur to achieve the magnificent aromas of fresh fruit. As a result, fermentation begins quickly. Precise control of density and temperature is carried out twice a day to have ideal fermentation kinetics, and the wine is settled for a maximum of 24 hours after pressing to eliminate solid parts. The must is then put in vats for the beginning of the alcoholic fermentation, then halfway through the fermentation, we put it in barrels for 12 months. After this year of aging in barrels, the wines are racked, we add a little SO2 to stabilize them, and then they are filtered or not depending on the case and bottled by us.

TASTING

It goes perfectly with grilled fish. Its vivacity and its citrus note resist well the iodine of oysters as well as the strong scent of goat cheese. More simply, Burgundy Aligoté is one of the rare wines that go well with salads, tabbouleh, or steamed vegetables. And certainly, with Burgundian “gougères”, snails, and marbled ham.

TASTING

With a beautiful deep carmine red color, this wine is very flattering, with a beautiful expression in the mouth: great aromatic richness where red fruits (candied cherry) and black fruits dominate, completed by the roundness of tannins. It is perfectly suited to red and grilled meats or as a simple aperitif!

TASTING

This wine, with its finesse and lightness, is best drunk young to take advantage of its freshness and its fresh fruits. As it ages, the red fruits develop into aromas of undergrowth, fern, and spices. Our Monthélie will be ideal as an aperitif and with choice charcuterie. It will also be a perfect accompaniment to round meats, roasted poultry, roasted lamb, or even rabbit.

TASTING

The nose is a sumptuous bouquet of ripe fruits while keeping the finesse and elegance of Volnay. The palate imposes itself by its harmony of blackberry, black cherry, and blueberry with a sustained touch of blackcurrant. Its soft and discreet tannins are quickly melted. To drink rather on its youth, about ten years at the most to appreciate its fruits. Its silky and harmonious structure allows a greedy cooking: saddle of lamb roasted with thyme, filet of Charolais in brioche…

The wine has a deep garnet red color with purple ruby reflections. The nose, pleasant, exhales aromas of black fruits, blackberry, blackcurrant, bramble, violet on woody background. The mouth, frank in attack, offers then a rich, tense, and elegant matter endowed with a beautiful minerality. The tannins are fine and smooth and perfectly coated by the fruit.

TASTING

Discreet nose of red and black fruits, this wine presents an aromatic complexity in the nuances of undergrowth, humus, leather, with a very ample texture, supported by animal scents. The more it ages, the more its tannins soften and reveal forest notes. Our great wine for ageing par excellence: 20 years without problems (in good conditions of keeping of course…).

Colour   Red

Terroir  Very shallow stony soil with the limestone mother rock very close. Composed of limestone scree mixed with clay

Exposure   South East 

VINIFICATION / MATURING

Manual harvest in boxes, to avoid crushing; these are emptied directly onto a vibrating sorting table, then the grapes are partially de-stemmed depending on the vintage and introduced into vats in which they will remain for 18 to 20 days. We do a cold pre-fermentation maceration at 4°C for 2 to 3 days before the alcoholic fermentation starts naturally. A daily control of temperatures and densities allows us to have an ideal fermentation kinetics with daily pumping over and some very light punching of the cap at the end of the fermentation. After devatting, we put the wine in oak barrels for 12 months, without new barrels. A filtration is done, if necessary, before bottling by us at the Domaine.

TASTING

Concentrated excellence: intense bouquet, silky texture, infinite complexity of spices and macerated red fruits. A very marked finish on the finesse and the deep fruit remaining in place several minutes after tasting. At its peak when it is 5 to 7 years old, but can be drunk younger, on its ardor, its energy, and its crispness or can be kept for ten years in the cellar. This unique terroir of Volnay will perfectly accompany a Bresse chicken with morels, a good beef filet with forest sauce, or a piece of veal with old-fashioned mustard sauce.
