This appellation was officially created on 17 February 1998 and replaces the previous regional appellation Bourgogne Aligoté Bouzeron. The wine is produced in the communes of Bouzeron and Chassey-le-Camp.
The Bouzeron colour - pale gold verging on watery green - may deepen to light straw. The nose evokes acacia, white flowers, and hazel-bordered country lanes. Flinty mineral notes and lemon complete a classic bouquet, to which may sometimes be added a discreet touch of honey or warm croissant. In the mouth its meaty, well-built body and luxurious vivacity brings out the distinct personality of the Aligoté grape. Minor differences in character depend on «terroir».
