Bouzeron

  • Description

    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.

  • Wine tasting

    Upon being gathered and sorted by hand, the grapes go immediately into a pneumatic press. Pressing is slow and gentle in order to obtain claer, non-astringent juice.The musts ferment in tanks or oak tuns at controlled temperatures in order to preserve each wine's freshness and specific aromatic traits.

  • Wine tasting

    Issued from 17 different parcels of Aligoté Doré of an average of 65 years old and the oldest vines of them being around 115 years, you will find what makes the quality of our Bouzeron: the capacity of Aligoté Doré to reveal the terroirs of Bouzeron which earned it the recognition into a village appellation in
    1997.
    The nose expresses the essence of ripe fruit, accompanied by refined notes, lightly oaked, intense and fresh thanks to the citrus fruits and with it, this sensation of smelling the "petrichor" (the smell after rain has fallen on stones). On the palate, we perceive the balance that can be found between the roundness of fruit, notes of white flowers and the delicacy of the wine's texture.
    A very beautiful Bouzeron which we only regret one thing: not having produced more.
    To drink now and taste the memory of the fruit or in five years to discover the impression of the marl-limestone terroirs from the hillsides of Bouzeron.
