Bouzeron Village

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte Chalonnaise

Bouzeron is a rather new appellation dating back to 1998, only producing white wine with the Aligoté grape. It is the only identified place in Burgundy where a village appellation is produced with the aligoté grape (a crossing of gouais and pinot noir). Bouzeron is a small village located in the Côte Chalonnaise next to Rully. The size of the appellation is very small: 116.1 acres. Fermentation and vinification take place in stainless steel tanks and aging in French oak barrels (30% new barrels).
