Aligothewn has been known in Burgundy since the 18th century, and it is very well-liked there. In 1937 the AOC Burgundy Aligoté became official. Wine made on Aligoté is rich with good fruit, fine freshness and good mineral flavor. The reason is that the grapes come from a limestone and clay-rich soil, closely related to that found in Chablis, except that it is extra rocky. The grape is also well-liked, as is the case with Domaine Roux where it is usually planted in an area called "Vollon", located between Saint-Aubin and Chassagne-Montrachet Villages. The grapes are manually harvested. Traditional fermentation on steel. Maturation for 6-8 months on the run.
Perfect as a fresh glass before the meal, the wine also fits well with grilled white fish. The fine acid in the wine also makes it suitable for salty foods like oysters, bacon and cheeses based on goat's milk.
I høyden mellom Saint-Aubin og Chassagne-Montrachet Villages. Manuelt høstet. Trad. gjæring på stål. Modning 6-8 md på bunnfall.
