Château de Chamilly
Château de Chamilly stands in the heart of a green valley situated to the north of the Côte Chalonnaise, 20 minutes south of Beaune. It was built during the 17th century by Noël Bouton (lieutenant general of the armies of King Louis XIV, Governor of Strasbourg and Marquis of Chamilly), on the foundations of a 14th century fortified farm. The Desfontaine family bought it, along with the surrounding land, at the beginning of the 19th century. Taken with the buildings, the land and the incomparable lifestyle, the Desfontaine family continually restore and develop the surroundings.
Produced from vines that are planted in both Chamilly and Buxy. This variety must incise the tongue, awaken the taste buds and make you salivate. A vibrant bouquet, the palate is quenching but with a good weight of fruit which softens the acidity. As they say “He who does not know a good Aligoté….does not know Burgundy”.
