Organic sparkling Aligoté! A rich texture but still fresh with notes of melon, lemon and fresh herbs. Clos du Moulin aux Moines is based in Auxey-Duress in the Côte de Beaune - Burgundy. Since 2008 they have been focused on organic and biodynamic farming. They still use a horse to plough on the flatter plots. They make several reds (Pinot Noir) and whites (Chardonnay) from the Côte de Beaune: Pommard, Auxey-Duresses, Saint-Romain, Pernand-Vergelesses and Monthelie. Some are premier cru. The Bulles du Moulin is the perfect into to tasting their entire lineup. As with everything they producer, the grapes are harvested by hand and indigenous yeast starts fermentation naturally. A fresh batch of gougères would be an ideal starter with this sparkling aperitif.
