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).

Harvest Note
This was a somewhat turbulent growing season. Lack of soil moisture and a poor fruit set diminished the harvest volumes.
Tasting Note
Sharp earth and stone aromas with lemon zest are accompanied by an energetic first impression, then over the moderate finish there is a soft and generous lngering presence.
Food Pairing
Ideal as an aperitif or with casual summer cuisine such as seafood salads, ceviche, or grilled shrimp.
