2015 Bouzeron

A. & P. De Villaine

2015 Bouzeron A. & P. De Villaine - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
De Villaine’s Aligoté is made from the local Aligoté Doré grape, a mutation of Aligoté that becomes golden when it is ripe and gives far more complex wine than its plainer cousin. Bouzeron is the gold standard (no pun intended) for Aligoté in Burgundy. Aubert de Villaine’s nephew and vigneron Pierre de Benoist likes to drink it with jambon pérsillé. I find it also works quite well with escargots in garlic-parsley butter and simple grilled fish. Basically, combine some chopped garlic and parsley with either butter or oil to dress up whatever you are eating and you will be in business.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
