Jean Berthenet founded the family domaine in 1974, and for a quarter century the Berthenet family sold exclusively to the cooperative in the village of Buxy. His son and grandson Jean-Pierre and François began to make their own wine in 2001, Small amounts of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Aligote from the Cote Chalonnaise that offer much of the taste of Burgundy’s more famous vineyards at a fraction of the price. This Aligote is bright and cheerful, another reminder that there’s more than one white grape that enjoys Burgundy’s limestone clay soils. Aromas of Bartlett Pear and green apple, lemon cream, candied pineapple, and touch of pleasant reduction suggest a fresh wine. The palate confirms it, bright and linear without sharp edges, carrying flavors of fresh cut apples, lemons and salted almonds. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel to preserve a steely shine of limestone-derived minerality, and it would be a happy partner with salty canapés, potato dishes, clams, and white fish with beurre blanc.
