Bourgogne Aligoté (Recolte du Domaine) 2016

Olivier Leflaive


Olivier Leflaive’s Aligoté is sourced from domaine vineyards in Meursault and behind the tiny village of Corpeau, just south of Puligny Montrachet. Vines average 30 years old in soils of clay and limestone.

Vinification: The domaine’s Aligots is made with low yielding, old vines, vinified and aged in 100% stainless steel. Racy acidity makes this perfect as an aperitif, enjoyed with shellfish or made into the famous Kir cocktail.

    A vibrant, sleek white, with apple, lemon and saline flavors focused by lively acidity. Balanced and long, this finishes with a salty tang. Drink now through 2021.
