Lovers of fine white Burgundy get ready for a beautiful example today, creamy with an intense lemony zip today from a small family estate, using grapes from just outside Meursault. But – surprise! It’s not a Chardonnay. It’s a prestige Aligoté you must try!

Less than 6% of Burgundy's vineyards are planted to Aligoté, and it’s so popular with the Burgundians that not much of it leaves France. But as you know, we have very good connections in France, and we love finding the rare and special wines for our customers to drink. L'Etrangère was a special find from our buyer Mark Hoddy and when he tasted it, he knew it was one he wanted to share. The vineyards lie next door to Meursault and close to Puligny so it’s no wonder the quality is high.

L'Etrangère comes from the Point family in Vergisson – an estate that dates back to the late 1800s. It was owned by Claude and Jeanne-Marie Point, but Claude died in 1903, leaving Jeanne-Marie a widow at just 26, with a son to support. Not wanting to give up the vineyards, she became a lady grower (a difficult feat at the time) and triumphed in 1904 with her first medal. Nearly 100 years later, her great grandaughter, Géraldine, now in charge, carries on the female tradition of producing fine burgundies with dazzling success – as you will soon taste!

These are gorgeous wines, elegant and sophisticated. It’s stunning served with whole steamed fish, or other fine seafood dishes.
