2014 MAISON CHANZY BOUZERON, COTE CHALONNAISE, BURGUNDY, FRANCE
Recognised in 1997 as a fully-fledged Burgundian communal appellation,the AOC BOUZERON is a salute to the Aligote grape, to which it owes its fame. This variety of grape does particularly well in Burgundy where its distinct personality comes well to the fore and gives its name to the regional appellation BOURGOGNE ALIGOTÉ. Bouzeron lies in the Cote Chalonnaise in northern Saone-et-Loire. The valley of the river Dheune separates it from Santenay and it is a close neighbour of Rully and Chassagne-Montrachet. Its hillsides have seen human activity going back into the mists of time and the district has even given its name - Chassean - to a prehistoric culture, famous for its artwork.
