Claire Naudin Aligote le Clou 34 2015 (Domaine Naudin-Ferrand)
Claire isn't really all that new to the Burgundy game - she took over her from her father in 1994. But her wines are only just beginning to generate a certain buzz on this side of the Atlantic. She’s been quietly turning out beautiful, affordable (for Burgundy) for years, edging into no-added SO2 territory when she thinks the grapes warrant it. Like many in Burgundy, she’s had a rough couple years weather-wise, so her wines aren’t getting any easier to find. But if you know where to look (and we’re where to look) you can find them!
Her aligote is always a stand out. Old vines, no added SO2, with a clarity and precision that you probably won’t expect from a no added SO2 wine. Bonus – it comes in two sizes: small and medium (also known as 750ml and 1.5 Liter magnum.) We may also have it in large (a 3 Liter double magnum!) so if that has you intrigued, ask us about it and we’ll see if we can dig it out.
MAGNUM available here.
