4.0
Domaine Naudin-Ferrand Le Clou 34 epitomizes the essence of Burgundy's Hautes-Côtes appellation, a region renowned for its cooler climate and natural settings. The vineyards, boasting clay-limestone soils and vines over 45 years old, thrive in the region's characteristic shallow soil, which naturally limits yields and imparts distinctive character to the Aligoté grapes. With an east-facing orientation, the vines are meticulously tended in gobelet, palissé, or guyot simple trellising systems. The wine is crafted through manual harvesting and long pressing of whole grapes without added sulfites. Fermentation and malolactic fermentation occur entirely with indigenous yeasts and bacteria, followed by extended aging on lees to enhance aromatic complexity, richness, and mouthfeel. Unfiltered and lightly sulfured at bottling, this atypical Aligoté boasts an exuberant nose with passion fruit notes, a round and powerful palate, and a saline finish, evolving gracefully with age.
