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.
Muted, steely-fresh white wine, with ripe white stone fruits on the nose, apricot and white peach add sweetness, whilst the freshest of saline acidity cuts through the wine in a marked and appealing way. A touch of flint, wet stones and again that razor-sharp acidity gives vibrancy and tension to the wine. Very good! As they say “He who does not know a good Aligoté…. Does not know Burgundy”.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks.
