This fabulous, old vine Aligoté is drawn from parcels of 40 and 92 year old vines, planted on the high, cool slopes of St-Bris. Aligoté is notorious for requiring old vines and the right soils to produce wines of quality, and Goisot’s holdings – in the lieux-dits of Croix Rougeot, Côte de Coutance and Côte de la Canne – nail the brief. The soils are made up of ancient clays, littered with fossilised oyster shells (limestone), several inches long. Goisot’s biodynamic management and ripe harvesting makes for a far more textured, pulpy and sexy wine than you might normally associate with this variety. Fermented with its native yeasts and raised entirely in tank. It’s a nutty, creamy, spicy and delicious Aligoté with pear, almond oil and white pepper notes. A brilliant white Burgundy bargain!
