From one of the Leflaive family vineyards close to Puligny-Montrachet, this is as rich as Aligoté can get. Even so, the texture is crisp, with fresh kiwi and herbs, finishing with intense acidity.
Aligoté shows a mineral character, with a chalky feel along with high-toned citrus- and green-apple flavors. Made from grapes sourced from 35-year-old vines, this has intensity as well as a crisp texture.
Yeasty on the nose, with very crisp green acidity and flavors of citrus and grapefruit. A delicious example of the Aligoté grape, it is a light, ready-to-drink wine for oysters or white fish.
While it certainly has bright acidity and green fruit flavors, this is quite creamy in texture for an Aligoté, its angles softened and rounded. The finale is fresh, with a more citrus character.
