Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2020

    A wine which represents the new era for Aligoté. This relatively unknown grape variety is feeling the impact of climate change. Historically known for its searing acidity, today its style is fruit-focussed with the acidity firmly in check. The fresh lemon sherbet flavours are complemented by hints of hazelnut and vanilla. This is fresh but broad, with a textured finish.

    The 2019 Bourgogne Aligoté had been racked the morning of my visit with the intention of bottling in a few weeks time. It has a lovely rosewater and apricot tinged bouquet that gets both hands on the grape variety. The palate is well balanced with orange zest and light apricot notes, a very pretty Aligoté with a precise finish. Lovely. Drink 2021 - 2025

Producer

Comte Armand

Clos des Épeneaux is Pommard’s most celebrated climat. The 5.23 hectare monopole has been in the Comte Armand family since 1828. Paul Zinetti took over from Benjamin Leroux as régisseur in 2014, and is rising to every challenge at this small, characterful domaine. They also have small holdings in Volnay and Auxey Duresses and, while these wines have the distinctive character of quintessential Côte de Beaune, they are also some of the most sophisticated, nuanced expressions you might taste across these villages. An understated use of new oak matches the textured fruit, and gentle handling in combination with intuitive biodynamic practices afford these wines both strength and delicacy. The domaine has begun to noticeably outpace its neighbours and redefine how the finest terroir of Pommard is capable of not only power but elegance as well.

Region

Bourgogne Aligoté

Regional appellation for white wines made exclusively from the Aligote grape. Unlike Chardonnay these are best drunk young, with fresh notes of green apple and citrus fruit. The best wines tend to come from the Cote Chalonnaise around Bouzeron. This is the classic wine used in making Kir with Creme de Cassis from up the road in Dijon.
