Maison Chanzy Bouzeron Clos De La Fortune Monopole 2012
Maison Chanzy Bouzeron Clos De La Fortune Monopole is a wine of a pale yellow colour with green reflections. Aromas of fresh, slightly acidic, citrussy fruit on the nose lead into a lively and balanced palate. This is a serious, mineral driven single vineyard Bouzeron Aligoté with a fresh, zesty and gently smokey palate. It reveals a typical weight of fruit with the volume and richness of the 2012 vintage.

The vines have an average age of 35 years and the easterly exposure of the vineyard helps preserve the fresh acidity that really makes the wine come alive. 30% of the wine was aged for 8 months in oak barrels to add some fatness to the palate.
