Terroir aligoté from Volnay and Morey St Denis. Terroir aligoté? Hell yes. Among other things, aligoté has the characteristic that, apart from fresh acids, it has few characteristics, and therefore very well passes on the soil chracteristics. Another characteristic, which is reserved for the world of industrial wines, is that it can give high yields. In the conventional wine world, especially early on, this resulted in large amounts of ploink - in the eighties, you never walked into a French bar around eleven in the morning and find a toothless little man drinking rosé? Ten to one that it was not rosé, but kir - white wine brightened-up by creme de cassis, a liqueur to sweeten it. That's what alicgoté was used for. Those poor quality vines have all been cleared by now. Only the aligoté on top terroir has survived the improvement. Hence? Sparkling minerals! Tight, mega stimulating structure! Ultimate terroir expression! Très cool.
