Domaine A. & P. de Villaine Bouzeron Aligote 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Bourgogne Aligote, the other white grape variety of Burgundy, that has lovely apple fruit with good body that is similar to Chardonnay, but has mouth watering acidity that gives it an extremely refreshing quality. This Aligote is produced by Aubert de Villaine, *co-owner of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti*. Together with his wife Pamela he owns Domaine A & P de Villaine in Bouzeron. The 2010 Domaine A & P de Villaine Bouzeron Aligote comes from a great vintage for white Burgundy that expresses beautiful minerality, fresh apple fruit, and zingy citrus finish. A fine aperitif, by itself, or can accompany fish and chicken dishes very well."The 2010 white Burgundies are some of the *most riveting* young wines I have ever tasted.... the essence of everything *great* Burgundy can be..."

Domaine de Villaine is located in Bouzeron, nestled in the Côte Chalonnaise region between Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay to the north and Rully and Mercurey to the south. Planted with vines by the monks of Cluny in the Middle Ages, this small, sunny valley has a rich and lengthy tradition of producing quality wines which reflect their exceptional terroir. Here, vines are grown exclusively on the slopes : the nutrient-poor, limestone-rich soil allows precise yield control, while a warm microclimate favors ripening of the grapes. In order to obtain the healthy, high-quality grapes we need in order to express every facet of an exceptional terroir, we have chosen to adopt organic agricultural methods. Since 1986, we have been certified by Qualicé-France. To respect the natural balance and interaction of the soil and vines, we use no pesticides or herbicides, and fertilizer use is restricted to organic vegetal compost. These variables well in hand, let us turn to the vine itself. To create a wine that rises to the potential of the varietal and the terroir, Domaine de Villaine controls its yield through selective planting and a regimen of sevre pruning and occasional pre-harvest thinning. The domain's harvests average about 20% /ower than the yields authorized by the already-stringent AC regulations. Read less
