Aligoté, the "other" white grape of Burgundy has generally been looked over or even bad-mouthed by much of the wine community for decades. This is primarily due to the majority of it being produced from clones of Aligoté Vert from the '70's, which produce huge yields of quite simple and uninspiring juice. Wines produced from old clones of Aligoté Doré, however, can achieve levels of complexity and terroir transparency that are on par with Chardonnay. The preservation and propagation of these old clones is carried out by a practice called "selection massale" whereby you take cuttings from a vineyard's oldest and best vines to plant or graft elsewhere. -Glinda

Vinification Method: Grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. The wine ferments in fiberglass tanks and is bottled with a small addition of sulfur. Unfined and unfiltered. -Jenny & Francois
