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.
A ripe and forward expression of Aligoté, with an appealing hint of peach and apricot showing the benefit of heat in the vineyards in 2022. Yet there is acidity, lots of it, and an earthy 'flintiness' that is so typical of well sited Aligoté. A perfect example!
Fermented in stainless steel, there is no oak aging at all, but after fermentation the wine is aged in tank on fine lees for 6 months prior to bottling.
