About Product

About The Wine

This Bourgogne Aligoté Vieilles Vignes is a young, on-trend, slightly quirky, gourmet white wine. Pale gold in colour and distinct in taste it has a fruity (apple, lemon) or floral bouquet. This energetic wine boasts a finish that tickles the taste buds.

In addition to the Kir for which it is renowned, this wine is the perfect accompaniment to grilled fish. Its vivacity and its citrus notes withstand the briny overtones of oysters, as well as the kick of goat’s cheeses. More simply, this Bourgogne Aligoté is one of the rare wines to cajole salads, tabbouleh or steamed vegetables. It is also a faithful companion of Burgundy’s cheesy-bread pastries, snails and marbled ham.

Serve chilled at 11° or 12°C. Best enjoyed young.

About The Appellation

A varietal regional appellation, Bourgogne Aligoté can be produced right across Burgundy. However, it has a particularly strong presence to the south of this region, in Saône and Loire, where the landscape opens out onto hills.

100% Aligoté

Following a manual harvest, the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed ready to be turned into wine in new demi-muids (500-litre) barrels. The wines are then matured in two-wine demi-muids for 6 to 12 months.

Les Grand Classiques or The Essential Burgundy Wines

A reflection of their terroir, the village appellations and premier cru villages from this range are revealed. Their authenticity and their assertive character are renewed crop after crop thanks to a deep respect for the ancestral Burgundian expertise.

For more than 25 years, Jean-Luc Aegerter and his son Paul, who joined him in the adventure in 2001, have been making fine, balanced Burgundy wines. With their love of their craft and their expertise their goal is to produce wines that respect their terroir to the full. From regional appellations to grand cru vintages, Maison Aegerter offers nearly 40 appellations from 50 hectares of vineyards.
