Domaine A. et P. de Villaine Bouzeron Aligoté 2015

$33.99

Aligotandeacute; is often regarded as the refreshing, cheap andamp; cheerful cousin to Burgundian Chardonnay, and in most cases this is an accurate representation. Aligotandeacute; from Bouzeron, particularly in the hands of someone like Aubert de Villaine of the fabled Romanandeacute;e-Conti, we're talking about something entirely different. Aubert works with a specific clone of Aligotandeacute; called Aligotandeacute; Dorandeacute;, which is native to the village of Bouzeron. Though this wine certainly does not lack for refreshment, its concentration, complexity and length are as compelling as any white wine in Burgundy, full stop. Poor man's Montrachet? Not quite, but it's a remarkable bottle that speaks to the potential of this grape when handled with such care.

Al Shikoh Delectable Pro

Pale yellow in color with aromas of lemon, green apple, and honey. Tart and mineral on the palate with slightly waxy texture and 12.5% alcohol. Made from the Golden Aligoté grape which finds its highest expression in Bouzeron where it is championed by Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of DRC. Imported by Kermit Lynch. Paired nicely with oysters.

Rocky like Mount Blanc, minerals like the Adriatic, almost salty (which I love). Grips in your mouth like one of those annoying locks on the bridges over the Seine. Perfect with briny, sweet seafood. Spectacular

Still the gold standard. Rich, elegant, persistent. Especially fresh in ‘15.

Rounded, richly savory and a little bit sour, the kind sour you get from touching a 9V battery to your tongue.

Nice Aligote from a great producer. Fatter in the mouth than expected, with white fruit and apricot. Quite full but still decent acid on the finish.
