Pierre Morey Bourgogne Aligote comes from vines with an average age of 50 years old planted in calcareous clay soil. To preserve the expression of the terroir as much as possible, the team have been working organically since 1993 and biodynamically since 1998. Completely environmentally friendly cultivation that culminates in a 100% manual harvest.
The Pierre Morey Bourgogne Aligote grapes are quickly transported to the winery and put through an pneumatic press. The must rests in a stainless steel tank for 12 to 24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous with native yeasts in concrete tanks and malolactic fermentation takes place in wooden barrels. Finally, 80% of the wine ages in concrete tanks and 20% in small oak barrels for 12 months.
Pierre Morey Bourgogne Aligote is a Burgundy white made in the Meursault style. A single-variety Aligote that is well-balanced, fresh and lively.
