Grape variety: Aligoté

Vinification and ageing
After harvesting by hand, the grapes are sorted on a vibrating table to remove dry berries, leaf debris and stalks. They then pass to another sorting table, for removal of any grapes that are unripe, damaged or unhealthy in any way. The grapes are then pressed lightly to avoid any risk of oxidisation. Fermentation is begun slowly and naturally, using native yeasts. To retain the freshness of the aligoté grape, the wine is aged in the vat for just 12 months.

Keeping properties
Best drunk young and fresh.
