Domaine A. & P. de Villaine Bouzeron Aligoté

Wine Details







Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) Our Bouzeron comes from vines situated on the best slopes of the appellations. We have planted to Bouzeron the golden Aligoté doré grape, which gives lowers yield and more aromatic wines than its cousin, the Aligoté vert. True to its varietal nature, our Bouzeron is a liveley, fruity wine, but it also has a finesse and roundness that spring from the essential nature of the terroir. These qualities lend it great versatility. To best appreciate the freshness and fruit, our Bouzeron would be drunk young, within two or three years. To allow the wine to fully develop fullness and "fatness", age it for up to ten years. Our Bouzeron should be served chilled, at about 54°F, as an apéritif, with seafood, or with a number of cheeses (goat cheese, Cantal, Beaufort, Parmesan, Roquefort, etc

Winemaker's Notes

The spicy and expressive nose is still slightly raw, having completed its malo only shortly before June visit. The flavors are quite ripe with ample mid-palate density, all wrapped in a racy and punchy finish that displays good underlying tension. A lovely effort with plenty of aging potential.
