Domaine Derain - Allez Gouton Aligoté - 2021

Burgundy, France

White Fruits - Butter - Hazelnut

Dominique Derain started his career making wine barrels but decided, instead, to study winemaking in Beaune. In 1988 he and his wife Catherine purchased 5.5 hectares of vineyards in Saint-Aubin just south of Beaune and began tending the vines biodynamically and making their wines in a non-interventionist way as well. St. Aubin is one of the hidden sections of Burgundy because the vineyards border those of the premier crus of Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet but do not command anywhere near their price. Allez-Goutons tranlates roughly to "go on taste". Made from the other white Burgundy grape: Aligoté. Light gold, slightly cloudy. The palate is round, fresh, crunchy, with finely lucious texture.
