Defaix Freres Bourgogne Aligote 750ml
Didier Defaix of Defaix Frères represents the 4th generation growers and the 2nd generation as an estate-bottled Domaine. The domaine was started in 1955 with only 2ha on Premiere Cru Côte de Lechet, the Domaine has now 27ha. It is currently run by brothers Didier and Sylvain Defaix, and Hélène Jaeger-Defaix (Didier’s wife). Hélène inherited the 4.5ha Domaine from her great-aunt in 2003 and Hélène and Didier vinified their first vintage in 2004. A historic family, Hélène’s great-grandfather, Henri Niepce, was instrumental in promoting and achieving Rully’s AOC status in the 1930s. Since 2009, the domaine has been employing organic and sustainable methods in the vineyards and utilization of natural indigenous yeast for all fermentations.
The Bourgogne Aligoté is a white wine, greedy and fresh. Thanks to its freshness and fine liveliness, it is perfect as an aperitif wine. It will be better tasted young in order to preserve that freshness.
Serve at around 10-11°C with a plate of sausages and ham or with mixed salad.
