Closeries des Alisiers

Bourgogne Aligoté

Burgundy :: France

Estate::

Son of a Chablis winemaker, Stéphane Brocard settled in 2007 in Marsannay (south Dijon) founding the Closerie des Alisiers. In addition to his work in his own vines in Pommard and in the old wine village of Daix, he has been working for years with the same growers and on the same plots for the wines he sources according to his philosophy: purity, fruit and freshness. Genuine wines, produced respecting terroirs and environment. His objective: highlighting terroirs through the grape variety.

Grape varieties::

Aligoté

Vinification::

The vinification is done in stainless steel vats, in order to preserve the purity of the fruit, minerality and freshness.

Aged 6 to 9 months in stainless steel during which malolactic fermentation occurs.

appearance::

Pale straw yellow.

nose::

Expect floral aromas, fresh apple and lime zest.

Food pairing::

Usually considered as an aperitif wine, it can be enjoyed on its own and also with blackcurrant liquor (the famous « crème de cassis ») to become « Kir » , the most famous burgundy cocktail. Aligoté wines can also accompany grilled fish, oysters or goat cheese. It accompanies perfectly burgundy specialties like “jambon persillé” (ham with parsley), “gougères” and snails. It is a wine which can accompany also asian meals.
