            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] =>  It is a perfect match for grilled fish, and its liveliness and citrus notes stand up well to the saltiness of oysters and strong goat cheese.
Bourgogne aligoté is one of the rare wines that does not overpower salads, tabouleh or steamed vegetables. It is also a worthy companion to traditional local creations such as gougères pastries, snails with garlic butter and jambon persillé, a terrine of cold ham in parsley aspic.
            [WineMakingNotes] => Although it is planted in very different winegrowing areas, the Aligoté grape is generally found on limestone soils, often combined with marl or clay. Aligoté is also suited to hilly locations and higher altitudes.

About this product +

Producer >

A 9ha domaine Comte Armand produces the esteemed monopoly Clos des Epeneaux, along with a range of wines from plots located in Volnay and Auxey-Duresses. The Clos des Epeneaux is a magnificent parcel of five hectares acquired by Nicolas Marey at the end of the 18th century. The vineyards are certified organic and cultivated biodynamically. Since Paul Zinetti took over the winemaking in 2014 the wines have evolved further. In the words of Jasper Morris MW they have taken on a more 'enhanced, refined and pure style.' All grapes are de-stemmed with a longer time resting on the skins than many. Paul said from the outset that he wanted to make to make a less tannic wine in the Clos, and one which is more about aromatic length.
