Bouzeron Aligoté 2019

Burgundy 🇫🇷 is renowned for its Chardonnay, but did you know that Aligoté is the second most planted white grape in the region? 👀

Some of the finest Aligoté comes from ‘Bouzeron,’ an appellation in the Côte Chalonnaise region (north of Mâconnais, south of Côte d’Or).

In a land of Pinot Noir & Chardonnay, Bouzeron AOC is 100% dedicated to producing Aligoté 🙌🏻. In fact, it first became a legally-recognized AOC in 1998 thanks in part to the efforts of Aubert de Villaine, the winemaker behind this beautiful bottle. 👏🏻

Interestingly, Aubert is also a co-owner & co-Director of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC) (and, as an aside, was on the tasting panel for the 1976 Judgement of Paris 😆)…

Yet, instead of devoting himself exclusively to DRC — one of the world’s most famous and prestigious estates — he and his wife, Pamela (a California native), were enchanted by the possibilities of Aligoté, and terroir of Bouzeron, where they put down roots through “Domaine de Villaine”.

This wine is Domaine de Villaine Bouzeron AOC (2019). It has a shimmering lemon robe and bouquet of white blossom, just-ripe white peach, yellow apple, pear, citrus, fennel, and wet slate notes. It’s remarkably fresh on the palate with mouth-watering acidity balancing the warm (14% ABV) and fruit-driven profile. It’s positively delicious!

We’re pairing it w/ pan-seared sea scallops, roasted asparagus, & lemon-herbed farro…

Cheers to nurturing the diversity of Burgundy in all of its splendor! 🥂

Les Longeroies Marsannay Chardonnay 2017

The Côte de Nuits – situated in the Côte d’Or region of Burgundy, France – is best known for its Pinot Noir 🍇wines hailing from famous villages such as Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, etc., in which some of Burgundy’s most renowned grands and premiers cru vineyards are located such as La Tâche and Romanée-Conti … 🍷🍷

Yet the Côte de Nuits produces a small amount of white and rosé wine, too!

In fact, the appellation of Marsannay (a northerly neighbor to Gevrey-Chambertin AOC) is the only village level AOC permitting production of not only red and white wine, but rosé wine, as well; it’s gaining recognition for its ability to deliver excellent quality wine for the price (QPR)! 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Here we have a Marsannay made with Chardonnay from the “Les Longeroies” vineyard 🌱, located on a gentle, southeast-facing slope ☀️ with cooling influences from the prevailing winds. 🌬️

It’s a pale gold wine with developing notes of yellow apple, pear, white nectarine, lemon curd, honeysuckle, blossom, chamomile, wet slate, delicate butterscotch, cream, brioche, honey, and crushed hazelnut.

It has a creamy texture and rounded mouthfeel, balanced and lifted by the pleasant acidity and primary fruit notes.
