    LOCATION & TERROIR

    Aligotte! 2020 is the second vintage of the remarkable BourgogneAligoté’s made for Déjà Bu Wines by Sylvain Pataille. This unique andexclusive wine is made from 70% of grapes sourced in Échevronne in
    a vineyard located above the Corton Charlemagne appellation. And
    30% of grapes which comes from Marsannay village in Côte de Nuits.


    Both terroirs are gravel soils. The Hautes Côtes geology characteristics
    beautifully suit the Aligoté grape variety, not having any clay inthe soil structure - a mountain-like terroir low in nutrients.

    VINEYARD& FRUIT
    Both vineyards have an average age of 40 years old and are biodynamically
    and organically cultivated since 2009 (Marsannay) and 2013 (Échevronne).
    The fruit, handpicked in September 2020, was perfect. The stunning
    maturity, fruit concentration and acidity level in the grapes
    invited us for a precise but low-intervention vinification.

    VINIFICATION
    After pressing the grapes on the same morning they were handpicked,
    the fermentation and 10 months of aging took place in 40 and 80 hectolitres old oak foudres - The foudres are brilliant winemaking tool
    to let the wine maturing at its own pace - tasting the wine at different
    time of the year, it evolves, breathes, shapes its personality slowlyand precisely. We love the use of old oak foudres for Aligotte!In addition to the blend, 10% of final pressing (jus de presse) of Marsannay’s grapes which was aged for one year in newoak 228l barrels was added before assembling.

    Léa founded Déjà Bu Wines in 2019 to celebrate her unconditional love for Burgundy wines, the region where her family lives. Her carefully selected 
    organic and biodynamic wine range introduces a new generation of Burgundian winemakers with a focus on French lesser-known appellations - all the wines are vibrant, alive and exciting!

    From the new generation winemakers, Déjà Bu’s wines cater for a new generation of
    wine drinkers: those of us looking for real, unstuffy and affordable terroir-driven wines.

    "I work with artisan vignerons whose dedication and love for their work shine through the wine they are producing. I'm very proud to be representing what they do with such passion, and to be sharing their delicious wines with you!"
