"Cooling citrus, pineapple, sweet corn, herbs, salted nuts and a Chablis-like chicken stock richness are all among the scents and flavors you will encounter in Dureuil's 2006 Bourgogne Aligote, a remarkably generous rendition of an occasionally ornery but too often overlooked grape. Creamy richness of texture reinforces the notes of nut oils of maize on the palate, and a truly gripping finish offers multi-layered suggestions of minerality by way of salts, chalk, shrimps, and scallops... nobody could deny that (it) represents outstanding value."
Ripe and spicy, with a lacy, refreshing core of chopped lemons and limes and a touch of white pepper, this Aligoté is one of our favorite selections in terms of sheer drinkability. Laced with minerals from perfume to finish, with plenty of sweet white fruit to tantalize the palate.
I wish there was more to be had.
