The 2019 Bourgogne Aligote had been bottled the previous day and comes from 50- to 95-year-old vines. It has a striking bouquet of expressive lime, Nashi pear, honeysuckle and pink grapefruit aromas – so vivacious. The palate is well balanced with a spicy entry, offering ginger and lemongrass, notes of white peach, gooseberry and dried apricot and a spicy finish. Excellent.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2027
