Domaine Jérome Chézeaux
Bourgogne Aligoté

The parcel producing Bourgogne Aligoté is located exclusively in the commune of Premeaux-Prissey.

The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. They carry out a first sorting in the vineyard, then on arrival at the winery on a sorting table.

The harvest is 100% destemmed. A cold maceration is carried out during the first 3-4 days out of the 18 to 21 days of vinification.

Throughout this period, daily manual remontage (punching down) and pigeage (pumping over) are practiced.

Indigenous yeasts are used exclusively, and malolactic fermentation occurs in small oak barrels during the extended ageing of the wines.

They use 30% new barrels per appellation.  The wines are bottled without filtration between 18 to 24 months after harvest.

 

Aligoté is a fresh white wine with good underlying acidity, good length, and good density.
