Domaine Chevrot Bourgogne Aligote 2018
The Chevrot brothers make wines full of energy and personality, with a clear sense of place. From four different parcels, this Aligoté has been grown on vines that range in age from 36-50 years old. Direct-press, fermented in stainless steel, aged in old french oak. Clay-limestone soil.
This is a refreshing yet supple white wine from Domaine Chevrot whose estate encompasses twenty hectares of vines in Maranges, the southern entrance to Burgundy's Côte de Beaune.
Aromatics of pristinely ripe pear, mint and bramble lead into a palate that is warm, sunny, and thirst-quenching. A precise white with a touch of body. The 2018 "Quatre Terroirs" is classic Aligoté - pungent with lemon and seashells and a touch of toasted sesame on the palate. The finish is bright and salty,
