Bouzeron is a rather new appellation dating back to 1998, only producing white wine with the Aligoté grape. It is the only identified place in Burgundy where a village appellation is produced with the aligoté grape (a crossing of gouais and pinot noir). Bouzeron is a small village located in the Côte Chalonnaise next to Rully. The size of the appellation is very small: 116.1 acres. Fermentation and vinification take place in stainless steel tanks and aging in French oak barrels (30% new barrels).

Bright and zesty, this aligoté has a mix of ripe strawberry scents and underripe strawberry flavors. That pale greenness gives the wine some floral tension, keeping it bright and zesty even as the texture is broad and luscious. It’s a clean and fragrant white to pour with boudin blanc.
