Burgundy's 'Other' White Grape

Burgundy's 'Other' White Grape

One of the first things your told about white Burgundy is that it is nearly always made from Chardonnay, well... this is the exception. Aligoté is the 'other' white grape of Burgundy but is grown in relatively small quantities. It is actually more widely grown in Eastern Europe with large plantings in Bulgaria, Romania and Russia (where it is the second most widely planted grape variety).

Domaine des Manants

The Bourgogne Aligoté I've chosen this month is produced by Jean-Marc Brocard (pictured), a name that some of you will probably associate with Chablis.  From humble beginnings, Jean-Marc first built his cellars in 1972. He tapped in to the vast experience of his family members in the region before starting on his own path, and the wine is a product of that combination between vast knowledge and the innovation of a young Jean-Marc. These days he shares the workload with his son Julien, and the innovation of another young man is now shining through, Brocard will never be a name associated with standing still.
