Bouzeron
Côte Chalonnaise
Appellation Village
White
100% Aligoté

Bouzeron is a small village located in the Côte Chalonnaise next to Rully. The size of the appellation is very small: 47 hectares.

Bouzeron is a rather new appellation dating back to 1998, only producing white wine with the Aligoté grape. It is the only identified place in Burgundy where a village appellation is produced with the aligoté grape. The Burgundy Aligoté grape dates back to the 17th century and has then been replaced by the Chardonnay grape.

Fermentation and vinification take place in stainless steel tanks and aging in French oak barrels (30% new barrels). This wine is bottled one year after vintage.

This special Aligoté is well structured, with hints of peaches. The acidity is light, this wine is very fresh and lively, not too tannic. It goes well with white cold dishes, charcuterie, terrine or as an aperitif. Serving temperature: 13-14°

Bouzeron will be able to keep 4 to 5 years but is to some extend more attractive when it's very young.
