Bourgogne Aligoté 2020
A Wine That
shows why Aligoté is equally as enticing as Chardonnay. If you're a fan of more linear, lifted wines, this is the bottle for you. Think zesty lime, a touch of peach flesh, and a dash of sea salt with vibrant acidity. Impossible not to love.

Where and How?
This comes from biodynamically farmed Aligoté around the village of Saint-Bris.
The whole bunches were hand harvested and pressed directly, after which the wine fermented naturally, and was aged in stainless steel tanks.
The Winemaker: Goisot
When you think of Burgundy, it’s most likely that your mind jumps to the hallowed grounds of the Côte d’Or, or you may also dream of the delightful, linear expressions of Chardonnay found in Chablis. Nestled geographically next to Chablis, yet contextually closer to the Côte d’Or, you find the vineyards of the Côtes d’Auxerre — home not only to Chardonnay, but also to Pinot Noir, Aligoté and Sauvignon Blanc. It is a unique little jewel of an area, which we’ve been excited to explore further in recent years.
Here, the Goisot family have been tending their vineyards for generations. Their life and work revolved around family, compassion, community and plant-friendly farming. And luckily for us, the wines that are born from their efforts are some of the most compelling wines we’ve had from this part of the world; bottles of purity and transparency.
