The Aligoté grape may be said to have fallen in love with this piece of ground, lying at an altitude between 270 and 350 metres. The upper portion consists of white marls derived from Oxfordian limestone (the first stage of the Jurassic system). Elsewhere, the slopes consist in part of brown marly soils derived from Bath limestone. The soil is generally thin and the slopes steep. Exposure is east or south-east. Some plots are especially valued. Bouzeron Village is made exclusively with grapes grown in white marly limestone on the upper slopes and this, together with a pruning method known as gobelet or palmette, allows yields to be carefully controlled, offering a very typical wine that is strongly rooted in its terroir. The lower slopes are used to grow Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for wines sold as Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise.
At once rounded and sprightly - a superb synthesis - this enjoyable and delicately powerful wine contributes lemony notes to oysters and matches their saltiness with its steady minerality.
