The 2018 Bourgogne Aligoté Charmes Aux Prêtres was the only white taken from barrel and at that stage it felt quite reduced on the nose. Still, I appreciate the palate of vibrant citrus fruit, hints of dried honey and apricot blossom and the tang of spice toward the finish. This feels a little richer than previous vintages, yet manages to retain control. Good potential - a wine that shows why this climat could (whisper it) be a premier cru. (NM)
This is the first wine to display any appreciable reduction and it's enough to suppress the fruit at present. Otherwise there is very good volume and mid-palate concentration to the sappy and punchy medium weight flavors that also flash plenty of minerality on the focused, long and complex finish. This is also first-rate and an aligoté that should age well. *Burghound Outstanding Top Value!*
