Domaine Roulot Bourgogne Aligoté 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Bourgogne displays some mineral intrigue with stony and savory crustacean-like notes, fruit pit bitterness, and hints of toasted nuts, allied to lemon and Persian melon. There is an invigorating sense of interplay between mineral and fruit elements here, carrying in to a finish of considerable. As there are 20,000 bottles of this, it can serve as a very fine calling card for Roulot‘s and the vintage’s style. I would plan to enjoy it over the next 2-3 years..." WA 12/09 "A fruity and very fresh nose of straw, citrus and a hint of hazelnut leads to rich, full and nicely voluminous with good concentration and reasonably fine depth, all wrapped in a delicious and lingering finish. Lovely..." BH 07/09

Jean-Marc Roulot makes every drop of juice he touches turn to gold. The ethereal beauty behind his Aligoté is rooted in the marriage of ripeness and steely acidity and mineral. Generally an austere variety, Aligoté can have softer manifestations, of which this is one. Roulot is an ultra-traditionalist in the vineyard and cellar, using only 15% new oak as though to sand the angular edges of the wines.
