Available Vintages:

Varietal: Aligote
Traditionally Aligote used to make dry white wines. This grape ripens early with moderate yields and produces wines high in acidity that can be drunk young. Its aroma includes elements of apples and lemons.

Country: France
A country viewed by many as the home of fine wine, it is almost unique in terms of how embedded food and wine is in the nations culture. Given the diverse geography, with so much of the country providing the climate and soil suitable for viticulture, it is no surprise that its produces such an extensive and varied selection of wines. It is the country from where the vast majority of the New World's most popular "international" grapes and stylistic influences originate. While there might seem to be an alarming disparity between the most sought after wines (were a case might set you back as much as a deposit on a small house) and the millions of gallons of vin de table filling up the European wine lake every year, there is so much great value to be found between the two extremes. Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and the Rhone may still dominate the market for fine wine, but regions including the Loire, Alsace, Languedoc & Roussillon and the South West are increasingly becoming excellent sources of good quality, affordable wines.

Region: Burgundy
Two hundred miles south east of Paris lies the famous and historic wine region, known in French as Bourgogne. The Cote d'Or, the heartland of the region, consists of two distinct sub-regions split on either side of the town of Beaune.The Côte de Nuits to the north, includes the famous villages of Vosne-Romanee, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Nuits-Saint-Georges and are known primarily for making red wine from Pinot Noir.Although The Côte de Beaune to the south still makes some magnificent reds (see Volnay and Pommard), white wine made from Chardonnay is the main focus. The most famous villages are Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. Burgundy has three other important regions. The village of Chablis (exclusively Chardonnay) encompassing the region's most northerly vineyards. The Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais to south are quantitatively speaking more important. Agriculture is more diverse with a significant portion of the land devoted to livestock and arable farming.

Sub-Region: Gevrey-Chambertin
With 400 hectares under vine and eight grand crus (more than any other village,) Gevrey-Chambertin is one of Burgundy’s largest but yet finest villages. Its wines are typically richer and firmer than neighbouring Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée to the south. Gevrey’s grand crus are located together in one area at the southern end of the village bordering Morey-Saint-Denis. Chambertin, often considered the finest as with the region’s other great vineyards, is appended to the name of the village to which it belongs. Interestingly and perhaps by no coincidence, Chambertin shares a very similar soil make-up to the equally famous white wine vineyard - Le Montrachet – in the Cote de Beaune’s, with an almost identical proportion of two thirds fine earth and one third pebbles. Adjoining Clos de Beze and Chapelle just below are also considered to be just as fine, but are slightly different in style, offering more delicacy and sometimes more complex wines. Some of the villages premier crus, such as Clos St-Jacques and Cazetiers in the north west corner of the commune, are often sold for just as much the grand crus, and are quite justifiably priced. The village level wines also vary depending on where they come from. Those to the north have more grip and strength, while the southern climats tend to me more fragrant. In this instance, blending of the different vineyards allow more flexibility in producing a more complex and balanced wine.

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
