2017 Bourgogne Aligoté Raisins Dorés, Michel Lafarge

2017 Bourgogne Aligoté Raisins Dorés, Michel Lafarge

Ref: LAFA170
White  |  Still  |  12.5% ABV

The wines at this great Volnay estate are now made by Frédéric Lafarge, Michel's son. The domaine works around 10 hectares of vines biodynamically and produces among the finest wines in the Côte de Beaune. The cellars here are low-ceilinged, cobwebbed and there's very little evidence of new barrels (very few are employed). Yet the wines emanating from the old wood casks are as beautiful an expression of their individual grape varieties and terroirs as one could hope to encounter.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

A lovely nose of summer-y, almond-inflected pear and apple aromas. This goes into the mouth ripe and rich with delightfully dense flavours of yellow fruits. Structure brings spice to the wine's core of this long and lovely Aligoté. There's a lick of saline minerality at the finish sparking new levels of juiciness, leaving one wanting more. N.B. Aligoté Doré is a particularly fine, yellow berried clone of the variety, this wine coming from an especially antique vineyard. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
