Bourgogne Aligoté is a grape variety that is capable of making incredibly dull wines. The worst are like a joke with no punchline, a single entendre, and the wines deserve their reputation as the poor relation to white Burgundy made from Chardonnay. However, once in a while you taste one that knocks spots off its more famous relatives and this is one of those rarities. One whiff and you know you are in fine company (add cassis to make a kir we will unsubscribe you!). It has gorgeous aromas, quite intense, thanks to those old vines, offering apricot kernel, warm hay, lemon verbena and a touch of sour cream. Barrel-fermentation adds weight and texture to the mouthfeel and if you can find a white Burgundy made from Chardonnay that's as good as this for £18.95, then please give us the details. 13% alc.
