Region: Bouzeron, Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France Grape(s): Aligoté Winemaker: Julien Cruchandeau Drinks Best: Now - 5 Years
Julien Cruchandeau was Burgundy born & raised, but not into a wine making or farming family. He trained as a chef and musician before starting his domain in 2003 at the precocious age of 25, and immediately started gaining accolades and attention for his winemaking. These vineyards in Bouzeron were his first acquisition, and the wine he produces from those vines today make it clear he is a naturally gifted winemaker. Ample aromas of green apple, lemon curd, and pear emerge immediately from the glass while crisp acidity greets the very first sip. A cool mineral finish follows on this classy reminder that good Burgundy isn’t always Chardonnay.
