This Bourgogne Aligoté 2018,was a nice surprise. I really like the soft bouquet of wild white flowers,pear and the hint of white pepper.The mouthfeel is soft and delicate,but very well defined at the same time.It's not a once quaffed,already forgotten kinf of wine.The sligthly salty finish makes it super food-friendly.

As my esteemed collegues noted, this is not a typical aromatic sauvignon blanc. Not much of the expected green notes on the nose. It is lightly fruity and has a soft acidity and some structure,thanks to the vilana. All in all, a nice patio wine,for reading a good book,under the parasol,with a gentle spring breeze blowing romantic whiffs from that bed of thrush by the fence.

Another vintage coming up for your summer pleasure. For the price, you'll enjoy a fresh sipper with some texture, delightful aromas of grapefruit and white flowers,and a scrumptious mouthfeel of fresh croissants,with its delicate buttery sensation.

Fragrant, enticing nose. Oaked and fruity, with a nice balance thanks to the acidity. The pleasure of a bold and tasty red wine. Chicken thighs drenched in gravy, hearty burgers, or BBQ meats will make your eyes roll with this wine.

Nice nose,that reminds me of a sun baked dusty road,with a few shades made by the olive trees along it. Savoury mouth with firm tannins and good acidity. Begs for pizza or puttanesca pasta. Cheers!
