In the right hands, the often overlooked Aligote grape variety can shine. Using grapes from 60 year old vines give this Aligote a beautiful concentration with a lovely balance of power, richness and acidity. A lovely finish of nougat and toasted hazelnuts.

David studied winemaking at school, but didn't have a family domaine to work in when he graduated, so he began his career in wine by selling winery equipment to local vignerons. His personable character ensured success in this endeavour, as well as friendships with some of the top growers of the Côte de Beaune. He purchased his first barrels in the late 1990s, and since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from the top growers to press and ferment in his cellar, always from the same plots of vines, since he knows the ones he wants.
