2021 Les Vins du Clair Obscur Bourgogne Aligoté Meix Pillé14636
WINEMAKER: Jennifer & Pierre Clair
REGION: Burgundy, FR
Biodynamically grown aligoté from 60 year old vines on sandy loam soil. Manually harvested, direct pressed and sent to barrel for nine months on fine lees. Impressive.
Pierre Clair took over his grandfather's vineyard in 2006, making wine in parallel to his day job as chef de culture at the prestigious biodynamic Domaine Marquis d'Angerville. His philosophy is simple - whole bunches, old barriques and zero adds (only a touch of sulphur at bottling if the 'test à l’air' is unsuccessful).
