ORIGIN

The area of the Bourgogne Aligoté appellation is entwined with that of the Bourgogne appellation.

It spreads across 384 villages of the Yonne, Côte d’Or, Saône & Loire, and Rhône departments. Starting in the North, from the region of Chablis and Auxerre, to the South in the region of Macon, and passing through the Côte d’Or and the Côte Chalonnaise, the Bourgogne Aligoté wines stem from very diverse terroirs.

This appellation is produced from a single grape variety, the Aligoté, known in Burgundy since the 17th century. This unique grape variety is not very common in the rest of the world; it covers 1500 hectares in Burgundy.
