OUR WHITE WINES

BG ALI NEUTRE.jpg
BOURGOGNE ALIGOTE
 

Our Bourgogne Aligoté is not a classic Aligoté. This cuvée comes from a rare mutation of Aligoté  : golden Aligoté. Variety with yellow-orange clusters when fully ripe (hence its name), it is less acidic, richer than its cousin which goes into the composition of Kir.

This cuvée comes from a plot of old vines, managed according to the specifications of Organic Agriculture, but without certification. Planted in high density (10,000 plants/ha), it receives only sulphur/copper treatments and the soils are worked to limit weeds.

Aging (which is rare for Aligoté) is carried out for 12 months in non-new barrels.

On tasting, the nose is rich, with aromas of lime, heady flowers and a slight woodiness. The palate is fat, tangy, which gives it an unusual balance and originality. The salinity at the end of the mouth, however, is reminiscent of the grape variety for those who have let themselves think of Chardonnay!

On-call time  optimal: 1 to 5 years

Food and wine pairing  : Aperitif, snack with friends, pike perch back with liquorice.

ICONOCLASTE - CUVÉE ARTHUR

The iconoclaste cuvée Arthur was born from an idea far from Burgundian  : assembly.

In our region, a past master in the promotion of terroirs and parcel vinification, this practice is not widespread in small structures.

And yet… What if the blending of different terroirs could produce a great wine?  ? Each bringing for one the minerality, for the other the richness, for a third the freshness.

The Iconoclaste cuvée Arthur, AOC Côteaux Bourguignons, is a blend of 2 grape varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc in varying proportions depending on the vintage and from 3 terroirs. The Hautes-Côtes de Nuits terroir brings minerality, this refreshing limestone touch. Chardonnay from the plain brings richness and fat. Finally, the terroirs of southern Burgundy bring an aromatic, ripe and tropical diversity.

The musts are vinified partly in stainless steel tanks, to preserve the freshness, and for the rest in oak barrels, without new barrels, to bring roundness and aromatic complexity. The malolactic fermentation is carried out at 100%.

BOURGOGNE
 

This cuvée comes from several plots spread over the Côte d'Or. The different terroirs are all clay-limestone, with relatively deep soils, which brings depth and a certain gluttony to this cuvée, while allowing it to maintain a thirst-quenching freshness.

The soil is maintained by mechanical work. No weedkillers. These plots are certified Organic Agriculture. Vinification in stainless steel vats then in barrels. Breeding  12 months without new barrels.

As with Bourgogne rouge, you will find in this white the archetype of Burgundian Chardonnay. On the nose, aromas of citrus fruits, butter and brioche then on the palate, a freshness that supports a nice fat make it a standard of our region. Very classic but with a lot of greed and pleasure.

BOURGOGNE HAUTES CÔTES DE NUITS
 

Located on cooler terroirs, at higher altitude, but benefiting from beautiful eastern or southern exposures, the Hautes Côtes de Nuits appellation produces fresh, gourmet white wines with a beautiful characteristic minerality.

This wine comes from selected plots, grown in large vines (2 to 3 meters inter-row), with controlled grass cover which helps to control vigor and erosion. With a slightly later maturity, it is harvested in the last moments of the harvest. Geologically, the plot rests on a relatively hard limestone slab dating from the Jurassic, on which alluvium and hillside scree have formed a shallow soil.

With a small proportion of new wood, this wine is still crunchy, on the fruit, with controlled acidity but a nice minerality. The nose is brioche, with citrus notes and a touch of floral which gives an open, pleasant nose. The palate is supple, fresh and the end is typically chalky.

CÔTES DE NUITS-VILLAGE
 

While the Côte de Nuits Villages appellation covers 5 villages to the south and north of Nuits Saint Georges (Corgoloin, Comblanchien and Prissey, then Brochon and Fixin), the plot selected is located solely in the commune of Corgoloin. In this climate, the soil is stony, well drained, on a limestone layer of the Pliocene.

The soil is maintained by mechanical work. No weedkillers. This plot is certified Organic Agriculture.

In this little-known appellation within the Côte de Nuits, the wines are delicious, full, with a typical Burgundy richness. The aromas are ripe, vine peach, apricot, with a lemony freshness. A nice acidity balances this generous mouth.

NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES 1ER CRU “  LES TERRES BLANCHES »
 

Located in the commune of Premeaux-Prissey, the climate “  The white lands  rests on a particular band of the Middle Jurassic/lower Cretaceous limit. This very calcareous soil has made the planting of Chardonnay usual and has made it one of the rare climates of Nuits Saint Georges producing white. Indeed, only 5% of the surface area of the AOC Nuits-Saint-Georges is devoted to whites, and only 2% to Premier Cru!

The vine is worked avoiding the use of synthetic products as much as possible. The soils are plowed to limit weeds.

 

The shallow soils, on a limestone slab, give the wine a beautiful minerality and the sunny side of this stony terroir adds a characteristic fatness and density. All of the 2 aspects result in a rich, balanced wine, focused on aromas of apricot, vine peach and honey, to which the vinification has only brought an elegant woodiness, to make it a worthy great white. of the greatest Burgundy.

CORTON-CHARLEMAGNE GRAND CRU
 

The Corton-Charlemagne are generally planted on the south, south-east and south-west slopes of the "Montagne de Corton" and form a high median band which goes up to the fir trees which crown the hillside. Several sub-places make it up but the most sought after are close to the famous cross of Charlemagne: En Charlemagne, Languettes, Pougets.

The hill is very steep and marked by light, stony and filtering soils from the Upper Jurassic. These blond soils facing south give wines of exceptional internal strength which can sometimes evoke the tannic structure of a red wine by declining extremely original spicy aromas.

Here the wine is of rare complexity. Aromas of brioche, ripe stone fruits, acacia, a touch of wood… The palate is magical, with this mixture of opulence, this powerful fatness but balanced by a healthy acidity which sustains an extraordinary length. A great white wine.

On-call time  optimal: 5 to 25 years

Food and wine pairing  : Pan-fried foie gras, quenelles with truffles, sweetbreads with cream.
