Productinformation

Aligoté is often snowed under by the overwhelming Chardonnay violence, but this is unjustified. This grape variety often produces beautifully pure, fresh and accessible wines and because there is less demand, they are also pleasantly priced, especially by Bourgone standards.

Carrette also pursues this purity of the variety and itself and therefore produces this wine, from start to finish, completely sulphite-free!

The vineyards are in the locality of Chasselas in the lieu-dit "Champ des Voisins" and is only 0.43ha in size. The vines were planted in 2010 on a slope, 350m. above sea level with a 10% gradient and an eastern orientation. The soil is a very gravelly sandy clay. Carrette's vineyard is HVE-certified ''Haute Valeur Environnementale''.

After pressing and settling, the wine is spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. This is also where full MLF takes place. After which the wine matures for another 5 months on the lees (lie).

The wine is bright pale gold in colour. In the nose, pronounced aromas of white peach subtly enhanced by citrus. Maturing on the lie gives the wine a lively but airy structure where the MLF provides creaminess. The flavours of peach, lemon and grapefruit are subtly expressed, leaving room for a refreshing and thirst-quenching finish.
