Wine Expert Note:

Pouring a pristine golden hue, Domaine Génot-Boulanger's Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru 'Les Vergers' greets the senses with a bouquet rich in green apple, white peach, and lemon zest, intertwined with subtle hints of almond blossom and wet stone. The palate unfolds a tapestry of flavors, from succulent citrus fruits to nuances of creamy brioche, complemented by a whisper of vanilla from careful oak aging. Its minerality is pronounced, creating a beautiful counterpoint to the wine's rounded texture. The finish is long and refreshing, leaving traces of citrus, toasted nuts, and a saline edge, underlining the wine's impeccable balance and depth. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness

The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.

Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Domaine Coche-Dury Bourgogne Aligoté is a highly sought-after white wine that showcases the typical style of its famous producer, Domaine Coche-Dury. Hailing from the Burgundy region in France, this wine is made from the Aligoté grape variety. The vineyards where the grapes are grown bear tiny yields and are more concentrated fruit than one would normally expect to find at the Bourgogne regional level. The winemaking process involves careful attention to detail, with fermentation taking place on largely unclarified juice to achieve the trademark struck match note. The resulting wine is known for its lean acidity, vibrant citrus notes, and a touch of smoky minerality. Domaine Coche-Dury Bourgogne Aligoté is a first-rate expression of Aligoté and an obvious choice for wine enthusiasts seeking a high-quality example of Burgundy's second white grape.
