Sylvain Langoureau Bourgogne Aligote 2021
"Sylvain and Nathalie own plots in Meursault, Puligny, Chassagne and Saint-Aubin, including 1er Cru En Remilly, one of the finest vineyards in all of Saint-Aubin, which is actually a continuation of Le Montrachet. The family’s vines are planted to 75% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir and 10% Aligoté.
Everything here is done by hand and with great care. Vines are pruned to a maximum of five shoots for naturally low yields. Cover grass is used in certain parcels to promote water competition and to minimize erosion.
The winery is essentially a garage and a cellar packed with barrels of fermenting and aging wines. Sylvain vinifies his wines with ambient yeast and only small percentages of new oak. The finished wines are elegant gems produced in very limited quantities." -Supplier notes
