Exclusive to Burgundy, Aligoté is the second white grape variety grown in Burgundy after Chardonnay.

Aligoté wine was made famous thanks to the famous aperitif of Canon Kir: Crème de Cassis and white wine.

The Aligoté grape variety, which gives this wine its name, is known to be more resistant and productive than Chardonnay. It makes it possible to make a fresh and fruity wine, very pleasant as an aperitif (with or without crème de cassis) but also as an accompaniment to seafood or shellfish. It is a wine to drink young, within 3 to 4 years after harvest.

Domaine Maratray Dubreuil produces a renowned Burgundy Aligoté from vines from the Côte de Beaune. Controlled yields and precise vinification make it a very balanced wine with aromas of green apple and white flowers.

To offer as an aperitif or with goat cheeses, snails and why not seafood.

Operating temperature: 10 to 12 °

Le Bourguignon offers this wine at a reduced price for purchase by 6 bottles.

Bourgogne Aligoté

Wine Characteristics

Bourgogne aligoté is a delicious white wine that is young, stylish and is a little different. It is pale gold in color and offers a well-balanced taste, and ranges from a fruity bouquet with notes of apple and lemon to a more floral palette. In the mouth, this vibrant wine tickles the taste buds.

Wine Steward’s Tip

Although Bourgogne aligoté is traditionally associated with drinking Kir, the local Bourgogne specialty of white wine mixed with crème de cassis blackcurrant liqueur, it has its own qualities and deserves to be enjoyed in its own right. It is a perfect match for grilled fish, and its liveliness and citrus notes stand up well to the saltiness of oysters and strong goat cheese.
Bourgogne aligoté is one of the rare wines that does not overpower salads, tabouleh or steamed vegetables. It is also a worthy companion to traditional local creations such as gougères pastries, snails with garlic butter and jambon persillé, a terrine of cold ham in parsley aspic.
Serving temperature: 11 to 12°C.
 

Situation

The Aligoté grape has been grown in Bourgogne since the 17th century and flourishes here. Whether from the Saône-et-Loire, the Côte-d’Or or the Yonne, it faithfully reflects the diversity of its terroirs. It was granted its own AOC, Bourgogne aligoté, in 1937.

Terroirs

Although it is planted in very different winegrowing areas, the Aligoté grape is generally found on limestone soils, often combined with marl or clay. Aligoté is also suited to hilly locations and higher altitudes.

domaine

Domaine Maratray-Dubreuil

Located in Ladoix Serrigny just north of the Côte de Beaune, Domaine Maratray Dubreuil is one of the most prestigious and regular estates in this part of Burgundy.

The 19-hectare estate offers several large village appellations such as Aloxe Corton, Ladoix in red as well as white, Pernand Vergelesses, Chorey Les Beaune, Savigny Les Beaune, but also of the first Crus and several Grand Crus of Burgundy: Corton (Bressandes, Clos du Roi) and the famous Corton Charlemagne in The Great White Cru of Burgundy.

Particular attention is taken at each stage, both to the vines grown with rigour, and to the harvest which is picked by hand and which is then vinified in the traditional way while taking advantage of the various technological developments, with a 12-month ageing in barrels for white wines and 18 months for red wines.
