Notes from the Winemaker:
This special Aligoté is well structured, with hints of peaches. The acidity is light, this wine is very fresh and lively, not too tannic. It goes well with white cold dishes, charcuterie, terrine or as an aperitif. Serving temperature: 13-14°

Vineyards situation:
Bouzeron is a small village located in the Cote Chalonnaise next to Rully. The size of the appellation is very small: 47 hectares.

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. The Burgundy Aligoté grape dates back to the 17th century and has then been replaced by the Chardonnay grape.

Wine making:
Fermentation and vinification take place in stainless steel tanks and aging in French oak barrels (30% new barrels). This wine is bottled one year after vintage.

Preservation: Bouzeron will be able to keep 4 to 5 years but is to some extend more attractive when it's very young

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Bouzeron Village from Domaine Gagey has a light apple blossom and green apple-scented bouquet. The palate is fresh on the entry with a pleasant fatness in the mouth but the acidity keeps everything in check and there is a subtle spiciness on the finish. Fine." - Neal Martin (29th Dec 2017)
