There is much great and interesting potential in Bourgogne, and now even “old” grapes like Aligote are being revived by new generations of growers.
Alix Millot has really hit the heights with her 2019s, which offer vivid freshness and vibrant mid-palate fruit in both the lesser appellations and the crus.

New times have come to the Hoffmann-Jayer etate – formerly known as Jayer-Gilles. Alexandre Vernet has made tremendous progress in 2019 converting the rather old-school style into modern, vivid Burgundies – exciting!
Alexandre Vernet: a name to remember
The Aligoteurs are doing a magnificent job boosting knowledge and awareness of Aligote in a authentic – and slightly anarchic way ❤️. New times in Bourgogne!

Plenty of wine and people

And yes … Jasper was there too!
