Note from the producer: “THE TIGHTROPE WALKER – A wine of captivating nerve, balance and body. There’s nothing sedate about this wine. Aligotte! is an audacious new expression of Aligoté. It’s a glass of everything that makes it Burgundy’s most exciting grape: dynamism, drinkability, deliciousness.
The wine eloquently expresses its provenance. Winemaker Sylvain selected 90% of the grapes from a vineyard in Meuilley in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, where mature vines (45 years) have been organically and biodynamically tended since planting. The terroir is mainly limestone, with rich biodiversity and grass-covered soils.
Ripening is slower in the Hautes Côtes and harvest took place only once full ripeness was reached in late September. A low yield (25L/ha) and a cracking 2019 vintage conspired to produce an exceptional concentration of fruit – and a stunning base for our first cuvée.
The remaining 10% of the blend came from a final pressing of grapes grown in Marsannay/Couchey. This splash of so-called jus de presse lends remarkable body, grip and aromatics to the final wine.
Fermentation and a full year of aging took place in 40 and 80 hectolitre old oak foudres.
The flavours are pure but allusively exotic: an initial pithiness and racy acidity give way to more generous notes of apricot, fig, tarte tatin, candied lemon, pear and honeysuckle. As the wine opens further, there’s herb and sweet spice – nutmeg, tarragon, fennel seed. It finishes long with an appetising almondy salinity.
So meet our new ami, Aligotte!, the tightrope walker – walking the fine line between fruit, spice and minerality.”
