AMI Bourgogne Aligoté
Regular price $29.00
Winemaker: Paul Perarnau and Willy Roulendes
Appellation: Burgundy, France
Grape Varieties: Aligoté
The grapes are pressed directly and rapidly settled. The wine is aged for one year without racking or stirring, and without the addition of sulfites. This Aligoté gives us a racing acidity that is backed up by a pleasant roundness that is not often found in
wines made from this grape. It could be paired with oysters, escargots, white fish cooked with crème fraiche and white wine (Aligoté of course), with soft cheeses (mild ones particularly), or could easily be drunk on its own.
Willy and Paul are fast becoming two of the most exciting winemakers in Burgundy! Both are natives of Roussillon. Willy worked previously at Domaine de Montille in Puligny-Montrachet and was the head winemaker at Clos de Moulin aux Moines in Auxey-Durresses, while Paul worked previously at Oronce de Beler in Vosne-Romanée and also at Domaine Hauvette in Saint Rémy de Provence. They are négociants who only work with organic producers in their region. There are no additives used in the winemaking process, nothing artificial, and in some cases, no sulfites added during the winemaking process. The red wines are made with Pinot Noir and occasionally Gamay, while the whites are made with Chardonnay and Aligoté.
In addition to the wines listed on the right, they also have made wines in the appellations of Marsannay, Maranges 1er Cru, Santenay 1er Cru, Côte de Beaune, and will soon be bottling a Côte de Nuits as well.
