Pierre Morey Bourgogne Aligote 2016

We were again stunned by this biodyanmically farmed Wasserman selection and took everything we could from our importer to offer at an outstanding price. Meursault fruit for less than $17, end of story.
89+ Our Score
(7/2019) What is critical to understand is that not all Aligote is simply an innocuous cheap acidic drink with which to make Kir. From a 1.86ha parcel of 50 year old vines in Meursault, comes this commendably complex, age-worthy example. Aligote's hallmark acidity is one of the leading factors in making substantial, old vine examples like this so underrated and capable of lasting in the cellar. Notes of tangy lemon, apple blossom, chalk and talc with a salty core feel alive in your mouth. Vitality is often underappreciated in wine. The finish is bright, incisive and long. This is a piercing wine built for dinner talbes. Though it has Meursault terroir, it is not a fleshy wine, nor is it draped in oak the way Chardonnay from that famous district oft-features. All stainless here. If you've enjoyed higher-level Aligote from Mikulski or Jobard - try this one too at a lovely price. Bring out the fish and chips and mix it into your rotation of Chablis and Muscadet. Go-Go-Aligote!
