Domaine A. et P. de Villaine Bouzeron Aligoté 2017

$42.99

Aligotandeacute; is often regarded as the refreshing, cheap andamp; cheerful cousin to Burgundian Chardonnay, and in most cases this is an accurate representation. When weand#39;re talking about Aligotandeacute; from Bouzeron, particularly in the hands of someone like Aubert de Villaine of the fabled Romanandeacute;e-Conti, we're intoandnbsp;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 length and persistence are almost shocking for a wine at this price.andnbsp;It's a remarkable bottle that speaks to the potential of this grape when handled with such care.

Very expressive on the fruit, floral, and mineral spectrums. Good balance and a very long finish - not sure if aligoté is my thing, would love to try other offerings from this estate because it’s very well made

Aligote from Aubert de Villaine, Mr Drc. Very closed at opening, needed a bit of air, evolved into a big Burgundy in miniature

This one was new to me and a revelation. Really tasty and a little different. Good the 2nd night too.

Aligoté doré from the village of Bouzeron (which boasts the best Aligoté in Burgundy and an AOC dedicated to this grape), by none other than Aubert de Villaine, legendary codirector of Domaine de la Romanée Conti. From old, low-yielding, organically farmed vines on the appellation’s highest slopes, vinified in foudres and aged for 10-12 months. Bright, elegant, complex and mineral. Dry but delicate. Apple. Butterscotch
