Bourgogne Aligoté is a white wine, fresh as a spring breeze. Outstanding as a pre-dinner - mixed with blackcurrant liqueur it becomes the famous "Kir". It is a perfect match for grilled fish, oysters.

Company details

The Chevalier’s Estate, was first created by Emile Dubois in 1850,
and received great awards back in those days from the ”Concours
Agricoles” and the “Exposition Universelle”.

Marcelle Dubois, his daughter, and his Son-in-Law Emile Chevalier inherited the estate just after the First World War and took full responsibility.  Conscientious and meticulous, Emile Chevalier, just after the difficult years of phylloxera crisis, spent years of hard work perfecting the quality of the vines in the farm , and his son Georges, with his paternal experience, took succession and began to enlarge and valorize the Estate, first by establishing the planting of three hectares in Gamay.

Georges Chevalier learned quickly, not only by the love of his work, but with his serious dedication to make remarkable wines. In 1959, he decided to bottle totally all the harvests. The result was that since 1969, all wines sold to his customers were sold in bottles. In 1975, when Claude, son of Georges, joined the family business, he also continued to expand the estate by adding
a further eleven hectares.

Since 1994, Claude, with the influence of his father, has concentrated on the vinification solely, of  ‘Estate Wines’. In 1998, he decided to change certain working methods in the vineyard and, since 2000, to change the vinification methods, (new barrel selection, fermenting time, maturing time in barrels, filtration etc…) and always with the main objective of constantly improving
the quality of his wines.
