2020 Bourgogne Aligoté, Comte Armand

This is a secret gem of a wine to know about: outstanding value, and over-delivers in a big way in vintages like 2020. It's a blend of young vine fruit (now 10 years old) with some 90-year old Aligoté Dorée, whose tiny, golden berries are packed with vibrant flavours. This 2020 has the verve and energy to match the excellent 2017.

TASTING NOTES

The 2020 Bourgogne Aligoté comes from three parcels had been racked the previous week, aged 50% in tank and 50% in 500-litre barrels. It has a perfumed, lavender-tinged bouquet. The palate is fresh and lemony on the entry, touches of pear and lime, simple but fresh and with a dab of ginger on the finish. Fine.
