About

Product Description:

A bright and beautiful light gold robe. A gourmet nose of mountain honey, hazelnuts, and almonds; notes of freshly turned earth, wax and delicate Caesar’s mushrooms. When aerated, subtle citrus fruits appear – lime and grapefruit, along with Comice pear, pine nuts and peanuts, dry matter from a very hot vintage, and very ripe lemon again, accompanied by a note of quince, showing just as much ripeness. A dull underlying mineral component can be detected as notes of plaster, brick, cement – all drawn from the subsoil, even if the limestone is very, very deep here. The palate shows substance, very ripe fruit – apple, pear, mandarin – a serious and concentrated wine with flavours of kumquats, Outspan oranges, carrot greens and root vegetables. A dense and powerful finish; an astonishing length with the mineral resonance of deep rock; concentrated; an Aligoté that remains aloof – destined for neither aperitif nor seafood platter, it needs to be accompanied by hot food – white meat, or at least white pudding or poultry dumplings.
