From within the limits of Meursault but on the flatter, richer sites below the D974. A vineyard area of 1.86 hectares and an average vine age of 50 plus years. Raised and matured in mostly stainless steel as well as a few barrels. Can be enjoyed young however this Aligoté will age beautifully and if you are an enjoyer of fine old white Burgundy, then indefinitely. Tasting Note: A closed yet detailed nose of lemon oil, waxiness, mandarin pith and a nuance of smoky flint. The palate shows an incredible woven, waxy and driven concentration that will need time in the glass to unravel. In a word, delish. - Jono Hersey, FWC William Kelley, The Wine Advocate: “Bottled three weeks before my visit, the 2018 Bourgogne Aligoté reveals notes of waxy citrus ring and green apple, followed by a medium to full-bodied, taut and chalky palate. I suspect that as it unwinds in bottle it will make my score seem conservative.” 88 Points

Pre Arrival Offer

We embrace the classic and historic 'en Primeur' system. It originated in Bordeaux and translates directly to 'of the first'. While in Bordeaux it gives the ability to a buyer to purchase the wine still in barrel, at The French Wine Centre it enables our clients to secure their preferred wines a month or two before the wine arrives on our shores. There is also a significant saving.
