François Martenot. Sitting majestically on the hills around Meursault, it symbolises the richness and diversity of Bourgogne with its lovely selection of Regional, Villages, Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations from the Chablis area, the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune.
The vineyard is located in Rully in the Côte Chalonnaise.
The soil consists of chalk and limestone.
Mechanical harvest. Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed on arrival at the winery. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks thermo-regulated at 18°C. The wines are aged on fine lees for 6 to 10 months in stainless steel.
Pale gold in colour.
Nice expressive nose of white flowers.
This wine is full-bodied and crunchy on the palate.
Ideal as an aperitif, it becomes "kir" when mixed with Crème de Cassis. It pairs perfectly with grilled fish and oysters. More casually, Bourgogne Aligoté is one of the only wines to pair with salads, tabbouleh or steamed vegetables. Perfect with Goat cheese.
