Benjamin Leroux, Bourgogne Aligoté, Burgundy, France 2019
100% Aligoté doré
Half of the vines are 80-100 years old; the other half around 30 years. The older vines are located in Bouzeron and the younger in Meursault. The grapes are directly pressed, settling before transfer to older oak barrels for indigenous yeast fermentation. Aged for 12 months, fined and/or filtered if necessary.
Benjamin first made this wine in 2016, using exclusively old Aligoté Doré vines from Bouzeron. The following year he included Aligoté from a newly-acquired vineyard worked by the Leroux team.
Organic certified, with biodynamic methods used.
