Discover the Bourgogne Aligoté generic appellation
The Bourgogne-Aligoté AOC is a regional appellation found in Burgundy. Only used for white wines made with the Aligoté grape variety, this is a very old type of grapevine found in the clay and limestone soils of the region. The appellation currently represents 6% of the entire Burgundian vineyard, and the Bourgogne-Aligoté is the sole appellation that can use the name "Aligoté". Fun fact: there are as many areas of production as there are Aligoté types, that is to say: a lot.
The appellation can be produced anywhere in the Burgundy region, no matter the department: Yonne (300 hectares), the Côte d'Or (650 hectares, on both the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune), Saône-et-Loire or Beaujolais (750 hectares for these last two). Average output is estimated to be above 110,000 hectoliters of wine.
