Origin : Aligoté is a very old grape variety in Burgundy, it exists as far back as the 17th century, from Chablis to Mâcon, and, in particular, in Saône-et-Loire and in the Hautes-Côtes of Côte d’Or.
It produces “Burgundy Aligoté” a dry, fresh and enjoyable white, which should be drunk young. Aligoté is a grape variety with small bunches of grapes (about 10 cm) with small spherical grapes
Origin : Chardonnay prefers marly-calcareous clayey soil where it can develop all of the elegance and finesse of its aromas. It’s the proportion of clay in the soil which determines the more or less aromatic and full-bodied style of the great dry white wines of Burgundy. This Burgundy wine is a balanced blend of grapes coming from the Côte de Beaune for the structure and from the Mâcon region for their freshness and minerality. The Cuvée Elégance is the result of the talent of our Cellar Master who has selected Chardonnay grapes harvested at perfect maturity and has aged the wine in 20% new barrels.
Origin : For several years, Patriarche has developed its suppliers in the Burgundy designation area in the departments of Yonne, Côte d’Or and Saône-et-Loire. In order to guarantee quality grapes, the viticulturists and associations of viticulturists scrupulously respect the precise specifications established by our team of oenologists. All of these precautions are taken in order to guarantee the constant quality of our Crémant de Bourgogne. Made predominately from Chardonnay for finesse and elegance, and Pinot Noir for structure, our Crémant is made according to the traditional method. Base wines are bottled in January of the year following harvesting and aged on lees for 12 to 15 months. This ageing on lees is a quality factor which provides a more pronounced maturity.
Origin : Located north of the Côte de Nuits, just above GevreyChambertin, this 115 ha vineyard (of which only 4% is white wine) faces east and southeast. It is composed of brown limestone soil with some marls. If the vineyard has probably been here since before the year 1000, it was undoubtedly cultivated by the Cistercians in 1177. The red wines are generally quite coloured, dense with a nice tannic structure. They are considered to be wines to be kept.
Origin : It’s the largest vineyard in the Côte de Nuits, stretching over the townships of Gevrey-Chambertin and Brochon. The municipal designation spreads over brown calciferous and brown limestone soils. The vineyards benefit from marls covered by fallen rock and red silt from the plateau. This gravel offers elegance and finesse to the wine whereas the marls, with their many fossil shells and clay, provide body and authority.
Origin : Starting in the middle ages, the Cisterciens from Tart and the Lords of Vergy acquired land and created a vineyard here. The soil consists of limestone from the middle Jurassic period, like that of Comblanchien. We find marls on the lower part of the hillside as well as fallen rock and stony soil which drain well.
Origin : Between Dijon and Beaune, Nuits Saint-Georges has given its name to the Côte de Nuits. The designation spreads over 310 ha. The different soil, exposure and locations between the vineyards in the north and south of Nuits are at the origin of the diversity of the wines, which are always solid and can be kept. If the production is almost entirely dedicated to Pinot Noir, there are a few vine stocks of Chardonnay in the Premiers Crus Clos Arlot, Les Perrières and Les Porrets Saint-Georges. Les Vaucrains climat is located in the middle of the hillside and dominates the most famous Premier Cru from Nuits, Les Saint-Georges in the southern part of the township. The etymology is uncertain but we think about infertile land: the “vaut rien”... The parcel covers 6 ha 22 ares on slick and stony terrains at an average altitude of 270 m. The vineyards face east/southeast.
