2014 Bourgogne Aligote "Champ Forey" Sylvain Pataille

Having always dreamed of being a winemaker Sylvain Pataille realized his ambition in 1999. He began in his childhood village of Marsannay-la-Cote with only 1 hectare. Today the estate has 14 hectares. Sylvain is a true rising star of the Cote de Nuits. In 2013 Patialle first experimented with releasing his Aligote Dore vineyards unblended, into four different cuvees. Becky Wasserman says about the Champ Forey: "Vineyard: 0.3 hectares of 55-year-old vines, soils with lots of small limestone rocks. Pure, delicate and briny nose. The attack is salty, the mid-palate is direct and linear, and the finish incredibly detailed and complex. A classic Aligoté Doré, with the limestone scree beautifully displaying the variety’s Chablis-like, oyster-shell saltiness."

2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenot Humbert

Emmanuel and Frederic Humbert took the reins of their family 6-hectare estate in 1989. They have been devoted to continuously improving the quality of their wines and remaining part of the Gevery-Chambertain community. It is here where they apply the combined knowledge and experience of their friends, family and neighbors with their own. The pair are complimentary to each other. Emmanuel is the driving force with unrelenting passion and dedication to the vines; Fredrick is the more reserved thoughtful type. Their methods put emphasis on manual labor and tending each vine, where ploughing and green harvesting are done with utmost care. The fruit undergoes a pre-fermentation soak to avoid over extraction of underripe tannins.

2015 Bourgogne Aligote "Raisins Dores" Lafarge

Domaine Michel Lafarge is one of the most respected houses in Burgundy. This is his Aligote, a small-production white grape in the Burgundy region, grown on the bottom of the hills because of its ability to adapt to colder and wetter climates. Lafarge is proud of his Aligote and produces a beautiful bottling. "Raisins Dores", the "Golden Grapes", are from very old vines of Aligote Dore, a high-quality clone of the grape (contrasted with the vigourous but less complex Aligote Vert), which produces clusters of small, gold-tinged fuit. An enticing nose, light, crisp, notes of herbs.
