Les Vins du Clair Obscur, Bourgogne Aligoté 2019


The Bourgogne Aligoté 2019 comes from a parcel of vines aged 60 years and planted in sandy loam soil. It is aged on fine lees in barrels, just like a great Chardonnay. A superb saline drive aligoté, deep, dynamic and with agood lick of acidity. Delicious young, but will develop with age.

'This story started in the 60s when the family planted some vines purely for personal consumption. Since then Pierre Clair runs the day-to-day in parallel with working at the prestigious biodynamic property Domaine de Marquis as a “chef de Culture”. He was previously doing this at Domaine de Montille. The philosophy of Pierre is simple, he vinifies using whole bunches, old barriques and without additives. Recently they have added a few more wines to their line-up utilising negoce grapes to extend their offering and experiment with new wines. A genuine rising star in less well- known appellation.'
