A gateway orange for Burgundy lovers.

If you’re dipping your toes into the orange wine pool but aren’t sure where to start, consider giving the Du Grappin Bourgogne-Aligoté a try. This cheerfully bright yellow wine is creamy and comforting – with quite a bit of body, bright mineral, and citrus qualities. Aligoté with extra oomph!
  • Aligoté is known as Burgundy’s “other” white grape, and though Chardonnay gets all the hype, this white, citrusy varietal has its own cult following.
  • The Aligoté vines are over 80 years old and hand-harvested, with half fermented whole cluster and the other half destemmed and macerated for 7 days.
  • Andrew and Emma Nielsen started their micro-negociant in 2011, and focus on crafting smaller production, terroir-driven wines that showcase overlooked vineyard sites in Burgundy.
  • Andrew was originally inspired to make wine after drinking a bottle of Dujac Clos de la Roche in 2006.

Vibes with:

  • Poutine (or anything with cheese curds, honestly.)
  • Making a blanket fort in the living room.
  • A cashmere onesie.
