Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Aligote 2016

New cuvée. Killing two birds with one stone, Burgundy style. This year Benjamin took on a parcel of 100-year-old, goblet pruned Aligoté Doré - the high-quality, low yielding cultivar in Bouzeron (Côte Chalonnaise). The wine was finished in stainless steel before bottling. Leroux has considerable pedigree with this variety, as followers of Domaine Comte Armand will no doubt attest.

"The 2016 Bourgogne Aligoté is a new addition to the range and comes from old vines. Benjamin had a lot of empty barrels and so he thought it would be a good opportunity to "park" some Aligoté instead of risking the barrels drying out and becoming unclean. It has a light perfumed bouquet with dried honey and tangerine notes. The palate is balanced with a smooth opening, a touch of spice and a brisk, slightly saline finish. This is a fine debut." 86 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate #234
