Chateau de Laborde – Bourgogne Aligoté Vieilles Vignes 2017
Vieilles Vignes, or old vines, reveal the power and complexity of Aligoté. This grape could be called the ‘forgotten grape’ of Burgundy, as the grape was out of fashion for a long time with consumers and winemakers alike. However this has changed over the past decade and more and more producers now have a quality cuvee from Aligoté in their range.
The vines for this wine are over 60 years old, and are located in Corcelles-les-Arts next to the village of Puligny-Montrachet.The soil there is clayey and silty, giving the wine a specific minderal texture and freshness. The annual production is around 5000 bottles.
Color: Green yellow
Nose: Aromatic nose of white fruits
Taste: This crispy and fresh wine has a lovely mineral taste on the finish
