Maison Chanzy Bouzeron Les Trois 2017

Maison Chanzy was founded by Daniel Chanzy in 1974 in Bouzeron, located in the northern part of the Côte Chalonnaise region of Burgundy. In 2013, a group of Burgundy wine lovers purchased Chanzy with a group of investors and have since added a second holding in Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune for a total of 163 acres planted.

With full control of production from vineyard to bottling, Chanzy’s impressive range spans 40 appellations in 8 villages of Côte Chalonnaise and Côte d’Or. The vineyards are farmed sustainably.

Bouzeron Les Trois is a blend of three vineyards with three different exposures: La Tournelle, facing Northwest, Les Clous, facing Southeast, and Les Cordères, facing southwest. These Aligoté vineyards, on limestone, clay and marl soils, combine to give a holistic example of a great Bouzeron. Vinification is in stainless-steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Aligoté possesses naturally high acidity and is often described as tart and neutral. The variety is capable of excellent quality when planted in a top site such as Clos de la Fortune where it achieves riper flavors and richer texture. Aging partially in oak barrels lends additional roundness and complexity to this exceptional example of Aligoté.

Food Pairing

White Burgundy, with its rich texture and toasted flavors, pairs well with white fish and shellfish and its naturally high acidity can counterbalance cream-based sauces.
