Marcel Giraudon draws upon centuries of family winemaking history in Chitry (Chitry-Le-Fort was once a fortified town, dating back to the Middle Ages), using traditional methods to produce this enticing aligoté. Giraudon's vineyards are located on hillsides of Kimmeridgian chalky marl (also found in Grand Cru Chablis); yields are kept modest and harvesting is done by hand. Although it often takes a back seat to chardonnay, the aligoté grape has been planted in Burgundy for generations, and is often blended with chardonnay in the sparkling wines of the region. It’s also the traditional wine to mix with Crème de Cassis for a classic Kir. Stainless steel fermented, this dry white goes through malolactic fermentation, adding a lovely textured mid-palate to its vibrant fruit and mineral character. The perfect sip to start an evening.
