Burgundy is a long and complex strip of regions, sub-regions, villages and vineyards stretching from Dijon in the north to Macon in the south. It producers, along with perhaps one or two other regions, the most sought after wines in the word sometimes selling for tens of thousands of pounds. But for a few exceptions the reds are Pinot Noir and the whites are Chardonnay, but it is the micro-climate, soils and winemaking that makes the wine so interesting, unique and varied in style and quality. It is the most terroir driven region of France and with its continental climate that varies much from year to year, vintage variation in the wines is everything.

Whilst 2018 may well be Aline Beauné’s first ever solo vintage, she’s no stranger to winemaking in the Cote Chalonnaise. For 15 years she has been heading up the winemaking for Château de la Crée (a domaine based in nearby Santenay) when a few years ago she decided it was time to do it all herself. So when the Buxy co-operative’s lease on 5ha of her families 12ha of Montagny vines came to an end she jumped at the chance. Her 5ha are found in the commune of Saint-Vallerin and are split between; 12.5% Aligoté, 25% Bourgogne Blanc, 50% Montagny Villages and 12.5% Montagny 1er cru Chazelle. Aline really is just at the beginning of her journey and with her skills and experience, excellent vines as her raw materials, and a modern vision and passion to build and develop her wines I think she’ll take them a long way.

Tasting note: One of Aline's most elegant cuvees. It has the ripe lemon aromas but along side that a seductive floral, papaya note. Steely minerals to boot. The finish is long with a savoury salinity.
Winemaking Detail: 45 year old vines. Hand-harvested. Pneumatic press, setling during 24-48 hours with cold temperatures. Then alcoholic fermentation in tank and barrels, with natural yeasts. 12 months of ageing, then after the racking there is 3 more months in tank to clarify and prepare for the bottling. 15% new oak too.
