Bourgogne Aligoté “Vieilles Vignes”
The Berthenets own 2 hectares of Aligoté, including half a hectare Vieilles Vignes parcel planted in 1950. Yields average 70 hl/ha. Grass is allowed to grow between the rows of vines. The Vieilles Vignes cuvée is grown on clay and granite soils and aged in stainless-steel with some lees stirring. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. This is a wine for a good chat with a friend or of conviviality. Fresh notes of fruit and a touch of lemon wrapped around a core of minerality. It makes an awesome apertif. Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.
