Clotilde Davenne Bourgogne Aligoté

Unit price per

A clean golden wine with a lively nose of acacia, hawthorn, apple and peach. There is a mineral freshness which is typical of the terroir which is accompanied by a fruity body of peach and white flowers. The wine is rounded and elegant with a refreshing finish.

The Aligoté varietal first emerged in the Bourgogne winegrowing region in the 17th century, and is the result of a cross between Gouais Blanc and Pinot Noir. It also shares its origins with Chardonnay.

For a long time, the Aligoté grape suffered from being compared to Chardonnay, despite sometimes being planted alongside it in certain prestigious appellations such as Corton-Charlemagne and Montrachet. It flourished on the best hillsides, producing bigger, more plentiful grapes than the Chardonnay varietal.

In 1937, along with the other Bourgogne AOCs, the Aligoté grape received a first sign of recognition, with the creation of the Régionale AOC, Bourgogne Aligoté, which was authorized to be produced right across the Bourgogne winegrowing region.
