Born and bred in the Loire, Jérôme Galeyrand came to Burgundian winemaking later in life from a career in cheese. He has forged his own path since, crafting stunning Burgundy on a small scale. His ‘Alligotay’ is a textural, rich expression of Burgundy’s third great grape–Aligoté.??
As with all of Galeyrand’s wine, it is certified organic and produced biodynamically. With marzipan and tropical nuances on the palate, this is refreshing and moreish.
"The 2017 Bourgogne Aligoté is marked by an added kick of textural richness that amps up the varietal flavors quite nicely. Dried flowers, almond and light tropical notes grace an inviting Aligoté that stands out for its texture, breadth and flat-out deliciousness."

Light golden colour, limpid and crystalline, often with greenish highlights. In the Yonne, Bourgogne blanc often develops aromas of gunflint or field mushroom. In the Côte-d’Or it is hazelnut with a hint of honey, butter, bracken, spices and sugared chestnuts. In the Saône-et-Loire notes of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and flint abound. On the palate it is aromatic, delicate but not over-light, full without being heavy, unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, well-rounded and quite deep, not overly structured yet persistent.
