If you like: Serious Burgundy white wine! This is not your average Aligoté. From a small 1.7 hectares vineyard planted on white marl similar to those of Corton. Altitude 320 to 400m, east and south facing. The first vines were planted in 1954, it includes some 64 years old Aligoté. Aligoté from Domaine de Montmains is as good as some of the best Aligoté from the Bouzeron region. Maturing 12 months in old oak barrels on the lees, this cuvee is bottled unfiltered.

 

Taste like: This Aligoté picked quite ripe and aged in old Chardonnay barrel shows fresh notes of fennel, beautiful rich texture, slight oxidative character, buttery vibe, citrus aromas and confit lemon with a long finish. Nothing like you have tasted before... 

 

Area: Bourgogne Aligoté from the Hautes Cotes de Nuits (Burgundy)

Farming: Sustainable 

Grapes: Aligoté (100%)

Occasion: Unique, this is a treat for wine lovers and great paired with food.

Food match: Rich roast poultry, fish in creamy sauce with mushroom, sushi or prawns.

When to drink: Drink now or before 2025.
