DOMAINE BORIS CHAMPY
Bourgogne Aligoté Doré
Bourgogne Aligoté AOC
The modern world has only glimpsed the surface of potential for the Aligoté grape. We are in a renaissance of rediscovery. This bottling takes this journey one step further with neutral oak aging to add texture and depth to these very old vines. The wine develops with complex aromas of citrus fruits, peach, and fresh bread. The palate is balanced and full with a finish that is elegant and nuanced.
POINTS OF INTEREST
This is the Doré clone, considered the most complex clone of the Aligoté grape, from very old vines. Boris Champy now runs the Montchovet estate holdings that are certified biodynamic (Demeter) on limestone rich soils at high elevations. Vines planted after the 80s are using the Lyre trellis system but most of the Aligoté is from the original vines as old as 70 years.
