Domaine de Villaine Bouzeron Aligote

If there's a "grand cru" for the Aligoté grape it is probably in the appellation of Bouzeron. And Domaine A & P de Villaine produces one of best. The low-yielding, aromatic Aligoté d'Or grapes are farmed organically, pressed gently, and fermented in tank and oak casks. Bright and vibrant on the nose with aromas of Meyer lemon peel and white peach, sea spray, and crushed herbs. Chalky and briny on the palate, great cut, with perhaps more yellow stone-fruits than citrusy white fruit on the palate with a long, sapid, lip-smacking finish. Enjoy now for the fresh, lucent fruit or cellar for 5-7 years to allow the minerality to assert itself. Makes a fine pairing with pan-roasted black bass fillet and salsa verde or young goat's milk cheeses. John McIlwain
