Bourgogne Aligoté "Clos des Perrières la Combe"


The story
This is a very aromatic wine with astonishing length for this appellation.
The vintage
4330 bottles, 60 magnums have been produced for the vintage 2018.
The vines grow on a plot in the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges, alongside the village appellation of Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Argilats. “Perrière” is a local word for “quarry”.
These vines were planted in 1978 with golden Aligoté in shallow limestone-rich soil of between 20-30cm deep, which brings wonderful freshness to the wine. The plot faces due south, ensuring lovely richness and an unusual density for this appellation.
Harvesting is manual and followed by a one-week skin contact maceration with slow pressing of 8 hours.
Aged in oak barrels (no new barrels) for a period of 12 months.
Aligoté : 100%


Tasting notes
The lively citrus and lime-scented bouquet reveals hints of orange pith with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and linear, with satisfying edginess on the finish.
