About the Wine

100% Aligote, macerated in whole bunches, then pressed off in Arnaud's small basket press. It's got incredibly ripe fruit, balanced with a taut minerality and focus. Drinking well already, but this one will definitely benefit from some time in the cellar if you have the patience. 

About Arnaud Chapuis

Arnaud is working a small holding of Pinot Noir and Aligoté in the Haute Côtes De Beaune that was originally planted by his parents. The grapes used to be sold to a co-operative, but now Arnaud makes his own wine and has recently planted more of these varietals. The wines are electric - lightly extracted juices full of energy and very pure fruit. Working under VDF gives him the freedom to make wines as he pleases, hence the unconventional finished articles. A real taste of the obscure.
