It’s not often that we have to fight our corner in order to secure an allocation of a Bourgogne Aligoté, but it’s different with Domaine Gouffier, because this is their most sought after wine. Their other Burgundies, beautiful though they are, must feel like they are at a party watching the misfit getting all the attention.

This is one of those brilliant little wines that flies below the radar of those only interested in labels like ‘Meursault’, ‘Puligny’ or ‘Chassagne’, but if you’re confident enough to show up at a party with this under your arm, then you’ll either find yourself surrounded by admirers or you’re at the wrong party. It’s a finely-chiselled white Burgundy, made from the Aligoté grape, and it has the cool precision of a fine Chablis combined with the mineral inflections of a top flight Bourgogne Blanc Crystalline white-fleshed fruits and grapefruit, with beautifully integrated oak thanks to fermentation in barrel. A super-stylish wine for sharing with those who know a good thing when they taste one. 12% alc. Drink now-2023.
