  • Deep straw; wet stone; strict, weighty, retains required cut; an unsettling metallic on impressive finish. Age appears to have added little. Though this will undoubtedly live long.

  • Everything about this wine belies the reputation of aligote as an aperitif or something heaven forbid to blend in a kir. The color is a surprisingly rich gold compared to other aligote I've tried, with green highlights. The nose is full of ripe white and yellow orchard fruit, with mineral streaks, a light florality and almond nuttiness. Broad, full texture, which if not quite silky has a borderline luxuriousness before resolving in a bone dry finish. I felt it had the depth and heft of a wine aged in wood, and from what I could gather, it spends up to 12 months in large, old barrels. There's a lees-driven creaminess as well. Interestingly, the producer indicates this relatively concentrated wine is made from the aligote dore clone as opposed to the lighter, less aromatic aligote vert.

    Bouzeron is the only Burgundy appellation dedicated to aligote and in the hands of M. Villaine there's no surprise it transcends its humble station.

    Since it's already June 2019, I soundly reject the community drink date ending in 2018. Lots of life left here.
