“It’s hard to get good grapes from vines planted on a cement highway.” Winemaker at Domaine Arlaud, Cyprien, states his reasoning for not using tractors in the vineyard, as part of his conversion of all the family properties to biodynamic vineyards, starting in 1997 when he took over. Dom. Arlaud is bottling some of the more lively and exciting Burgundies today. Their naturalistic approach continues in the winery where minimal intervention is done, and the fruit and terroir of Burgundy are allowed to speak for themselves.
Their wholesome farming continues in this delicious Aligote. An often misunderstood grape that’s long been overshadowed by Chardonnay. Aligote has more appeal factor, doesn’t need to age, and is good for drinking any time. This wine comes from vines over 40 year in age and ages purely in steel, no oak.
