October 24, 2022 - Pale; wet sandstone on nose; steely, citrussy cut, yet has an underlying richness. Not overtly Aligoté. Tonight not firing on all cylinders.
June 15, 2022 - Un Aligoté de course !
Nez typiquement PYCM avec sa touche soufré, allumette, la bouche est vive, pleine d'acidité qui nous fait saliver, un peu de coing, miel, citron, c'est tout en fraicheur et magnifiquement long pour un Aligoté.
Parfait pour l'apéro et définitivement mon Aligoté #1 jusqu'a présent.
April 22, 2022 - Pas de notes mais un Aligoté frais, agréable et fort bien fait, très légèrement souffré à l’ouverture.
February 5, 2022 - With air: struck match. Iodine, saline notes. Youthful. Would have been better, sooner, with a vigorous decant.
December 4, 2021 - Super pale. Nose is melon, pear, and another fruit I can’t place. Light body but substantial at the same time. More melon, green apple, white peach. Perfect acid, finish lingers but doesn’t overstay. Lovely.
May 13, 2021 - seriously lacking any charm. Nose ok on white flower and matchstick but mouth is too acidic and sour.
April 16, 2021 - Not a substitute for the Chardonnay. 8 bottles would have been better spent upgrading, at least this vintage .
April 11, 2021 - Agree with other notes, very pale in color - almost looks like a cider. I really enjoyed this, extremely light body but interesting. Very crushable but had character at the same time. Would buy again, great QPR.
March 22, 2021 - Very pale color. Light body. Delicate fruits. Good balance. Long finish. This would seem to go very well with seafood.
February 26, 2021 - On opening on 2/26/21, I poured 4 glasses from the bottle using the Vinloq preservation system.
The wine was very light yellow in color. The nose lead with a reductive matchstick which didn't quite overwhelm a hint of perfume and some lemon fruit.
When drinking, the reductive flavors lead the way but I really like the way the flintiness combines with the bright acid fruit. There are also some peach notes and a hint of tropical fruits that may be the result of the warmth of the vintage. This is very easy to drink and the acidity keeps me ready for the next taste. *91 points on day 1
After 5 days with Vinloq preservation I returned for the final glass left in the bottle. Even after 5 days the reductive note is persistent and that doesn't make me unhappy. The wine retains the same form from when it was opened with no perceptible change. *91 points on day 6
I love the familial resemblance this aligote wine shares with the chardonnay wines that PYCM has built their reputation on. This aligote was a totally enjoyable wine and an excellent value
