Domaine Stephane Aladame.

Pungent minerally greengage and grapefruit aromas attack the nose while the palate is treated to a white wine of great texture with really intense honey and apple flavours, lots of zesty mineral hints and a very long, fresh finish. Pure Chardonnay class from Burgundy.

Stephane Aladame

Stéphane Aladame’s Domaine is in Montagny in the Côte Chalonnaise. He created his Domaine, aged 18 in 1992. It was not necessarily his intention to start his own domaine so young, but when he was offered the land on the retirement of Maxime Millet in Montagny-les-Buxy, it was too good an opportunity to turn down.

 

He very quickly became one of the youngest and most respected winemakers of Côte Chalonnaise. Stephane's main focus is Montagny Premier Cru, all of which is white, made from Chardonnay. The Montagny appelation is not the most well known in Burgundy. There are only 18 producers in all, and the majoruty of the area's output is from the Cave Cooperative.

 

Because of the calcareous nature of the soil and the minimal use of oak ,the 'Les Decouverte' sees no oak, the 'Les Vignes Derniere' only old oak, he considers his wines more Chablis-like than Cote D'Or. The vines are cultivated without the use of chemical fertilisers to obtain quality grapes and a moderate yield, and are hand-harvested .

Domaine Stephane Aladame

The vines are cultivated with respect for the terroir. The floors are worked mechanically (plowing, scratching ...). In some plots, natural grassing helps to limit erosion and thus preserve the soil. Phytosanitary treatments are carried out only with natural products (sulfur and copper). These treatments are not systematic but carried out according to the weather conditions. Their number can vary from 5 to 12 depending on the year. The essential is in the grape! The most important thing to make a great wine is to have beautiful grapes that will bring balance and purity in the wines.
