Domaine Darviot-Perrin, Bourgogne Aligoté “Champs Lins” Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France 2020 (750mL)

“Darviot-Perrin is, without question, the most fortuitous direct-import deal we’ve ever made. Their 2020 White Burgundies have just hit our warehouse and we’re thrilled to share them at the lowest price in America.”

Burgundy’s “other” white grape. Aligoté is the hardier, earlier-ripening cousin of Chardonnay that was widely planted and enjoyed across Burgundy in the 19th century. Now, only a few hidden pockets can be found throughout the Côte de Beaune, but several elite producers—Roulot, Coche-Dury, Ramonet, Leroy, and Darviot-Perrin, of course—are keen on keeping it alive. Darviot-Perrin’s tiny Aligoté parcel is planted to 60-year-old, organically farmed vines. The hand-harvested grapes are whole-cluster pressed and fermented using ambient yeasts. The resulting wine is aged in 25% new Allier oak barrels for 12 months. This is followed by six additional months in stainless steel tank before the wines are bottled without filtration.
