2013 Domaine Faiveley Bouzeron Aligoté

SKU #1234751

Allen Meadows reports on Faiveley's 2013 vintage: "Erwan Faiveley and Bernard Hervet describe 2013 as a 'difficult vintage that contrary to what one might have easily expected produced some really lovely and classic wines. The growing season was very challenging, especially in the Côte de Beaune but even in the Côte de Nuits it was no cakewalk. We began picking in the Côte de Beaune on the 26th of September and in the Côte de Nuits on the 30th. Sorting was highly variable with some parcels requiring quite a bit and some almost none at all though as a very general statement there was more in the Côte de Beaune. We did use some whole clusters in our vinifications though none for our wines in Gevrey as we were afraid of off odors that have been common there over the past 10 years or so. Quantities were not generous but at least we had slightly better yields than we realized in 2012. As to wine quality the whites are good to very good but the reds are excellent.'"

Here's the perfect apertif wine to welcome your holiday guests this season! Lively, light-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Pale yellow in color, this refresher has the scent of white flower and on the palate has a zippy, citrus note reminiscent of pomelo, lime and wet stone. This is a great starter to whet the appetite or serve with roasted herb turkey!

Additional Information:



- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
