Francois de Nicolay - Bouzeron AOC - Aligoté - Burgundy
The famous family domaine is well established in Savigny les Beaune and the wines are made in their vaulted cellars at Chandon de Briailles. "François de Nicolay" is his own micro négoce started in 2000, only sourcing grapes from friends that work using organic and mostly biodynamic methods. Aligoté is the new hype grape in Burgundy - you heard it here first! No longer destined only for Kir cassis cocktails. When created biodynamically and crafted like a Grand Cru we say yes for seconds.
The minerality is striking and there is delicate white flowers, soft toasted aromas balance the fresh fruitiness.
Usually, Aligote is not a grape to be excited for, but wait to try that one.
