Aligoté Vin de France “Le Grand A” 2020 – David Moret

Oaky Whites

In the right hands, the often-overlooked Aligoté grape variety can shine. Using grapes from old vines gives this Aligoté a beautiful concentration with a lovely balance of power, richness and acidity. Notes of nougat and toasted hazelnuts carry through onto the finish.

About this wine

The grapes to produce the Aligoté Vin de France “Le Grand A” David Moret were brought to the winery and pressed immediately to preserve their vibrant aromatics and flavours. The must then underwent alcoholic and malolactic fermentation using indigenous yeasts only. After fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak, 25% of which was new, for 18 months before being bottled, without fining or filtration. The grapes are sourced in the village of Bouzeron, where the 60-year-old vines are planted on clay and limestone soils, producing fabulously concentrated and stand-out Aligoté. David Moret is a micro-négociant making only white wines in his small cellar in Beaune. He studied oenology, but then went on to sell winemaking supplies before finally deciding to make wines himself. With no family-owned vines, he bought grapes to vinify, purchasing his first barrels in the late 1990s and starting the Moret-Nominé label in 2000. Since then, he has continued to buy small parcels of grapes from top growers, to vinify in his cellars. Fermented using indigenous yeasts, the wines are bottled without fining or filtration after the natural settling that occurs during their period in oak. David uses 20% new oak for his Villages wines and up to 40% new oak for his Premiers and Grands Crus.
