    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Domaine de la Folie, Bourgogne, Aligoté, 2022

    Produced from centenarian Aligoté Dorée vines, the oldest on the estate, on a north, north-east facing vineyard, this is brimming with delicate chalky minerality and white fleshed orchard fruits. Refined and very refreshing. Vinified exclusively in steel tanks to enhance the wine’s natural freshness.

    Neal Martin, Vinous
    The 2022 Bourgogne Aligoté sports a snazzy retro label to reflect the century-old vines and the fact that these are Aligoté d'Orée. The delightful bouquet has delineated apricot and orange pith scents and hints of nectarine. The palate is well-balanced with impressive weight and a light resinous texture. It's precisely what one looks for in an Aligoté without having to pay a fortune for the pleasure.

    Domaine de la Folie

    An exciting Domaine reborn. Clémence and Baptiste Dubrulle took over at the Domaine in 2010, but the estate’s history goes back three hundred years. It was Clémence’s grandfather that really made the reputation of the Domaine as one of the greats in the Côte Chalonnaise in the sixties and seventies. The Domaine fell on hard times and had nearly gone to ruin until Clémence and Baptiste took over and set about restoring it to its former glory. What a turnaround. The Domaine, based in Chagny, stretches over 13 hectares of Rully, two-thirds of which is planted to Chardonnay and one-third Pinot Noir. Viticulture is sustainable, respecting both tradition and the environment, chemical herbicides are avoided and harvest is manual in small cases. The wines, which are from some of the region’s finest single vineyards, are aged in steel or with oak barrels up to a maximum of five years-old depending on the cuvée. It’s wonderful to see this Domaine fulfilling their potential and showing that of the Rully region for producing, classy, pure wines of huge character.
