Domaine Du Corps de Garde Bourgogne Aligote
Green-gold, ripe yet racy. Like all of France’s greatest winegrowers, father and son Jean-Hughes and Guilhem Goisot work tirelessly in their vineyards to produce the highest standards of grapes possible. The vineyards are planted to 10,000 vines per acre as opposed to the regional average of roughly half this density. The viticulture is certified biodynamic and yields are kept very low. They use only homeopathic, natural treatments in the vineyard and harvests are done exclusively by hand, with several passes through the vineyard. In the winery the philosophy is classic ‘minimalist’ with natural yeasts, a long, slow elevage, minimal fining and/or filtration only if required. Very few, if any, Chablis producers can match these exacting viticulture standards.
