Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Aligote 2020


Pre-arrival. Ships October.

“Picked 15th September from their own vineyard below Meursault, at 12.9% alcohol. Bottled just before harvest having been mostly made in foudre. A little meaty touch, very good weight, greengage and yellow plum. Opens out very well afterwards, relatively fleshy. Pretty, with a long finish.” 88 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

“The 2020 Bourgogne Aligoté had been bottled in mid-September. It has a clean and fresh bouquet with lemon zest and light malic aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, a nice touch of sour lemon on the finish.” 87 points, Neal Martin, Vinous


Screwcap. As followers of Domaine Comte Armand will know, Leroux has a considerable pedigree with this variety. This is a wine that comes from an estate-owned parcel of 50-year-old vines within Meursault’s Les Belles Roses vineyard. This site is home to Aligoté Doré, the high-quality, low-yielding cultivar of this variety. The 2020 was naturally fermented and the aging was all in seasoned 12-hectolitre ovals.
