Claire Naudin Bourgogne Aligote Mallon

$29.51

Claire Naudin comes from a very long line of winemakers. Her ancestors were tending vines in Burgundy as far back as the 1500’s. In her own words – “Many generations of winemakers have built our domain. One after the other, they knew how to work the vine and express the best of the fruit. Each new generation has been a source of renewal and dynamism, of questioning and new projects.” She took over management of the domaine from her father in 1999. As an advocate for sustainable farming, she completely rejects the use of chemicals and has been vocal about her objection to manipulative methods in the cellar. Although she farms organically, she has not sought out certification. 

The “Mallon” Bourgogne Aligoté Blanc is made from grapes harvested from sites in Magny lès Villers and Villers la Faye where the vines receive ample sunshine. The grapes for this wine were pressed into stainless steel and enameled tanks to be vinified. It was aged on fine lees for 7 months without bâtonnage, and fined with bentonite clay. Before bottling it was given a small amount of sulphur (less than 50ppm total SO2). Lemon yellow In the glass, on the nose it expresses primary aromas of orchard fruits such as yellow apples, salty pears, and white peaches. The ripe midpalate has bracing acidity and chalky minerality. Neither austere or creamy, it sits somewhere nicely in the middle. A subtle touch of butterscotch adds a savoury note to the finish.
