Bouzeron, the northernmost village in the Côte Chalonnaise, is situated just five kilometers south of the grand crus of Chassagne-Montrachet. This unique appellation is solely for Aligoté—specifically, a local strain known as Aligoté Doré which tends to be spicier, rounder, and more complex than the more commonly planted Aligoté Vert. Notably, Aligoté in the appellation of Bouzeron is planted exclusively on slopes, whereas in many other parts of Burgundy it is relegated to the flatlands. Nathalie owns 0.45 hectares worth of Aligoté here split among two parcels, one planted in the 1980s and the other in the 1950s, and she ages it on its fine lees for a full year entirely in stainless steel (she dislikes oak influence on Aligoté). Generously textured but with ample tension, it displays seashell-like minerality beneath fruit that veers between citrussy and borderline exotic.
