Tasting Notes

Light yellow gold colour with green highlights. Attractive nose combining yellow plum, citrus fruit and hints of lime blossom. On the palate, this wine's fruity aromas are cradled in a harmonious freshness. Straightforward, with intense aromas of grapefruit, this is a quality Aligoté. (tasted in 2023)

Pale yellow colour with light green highlights. Delicate nose of flowers and white fruit. Expressive, tangy palate, with light oak to support the wine. Fine salinity on the finish. Serve with grilled fish (tasted in 2022).

Golden yellow colour with brilliant highlights. Attractive nose of white fruit, with hints of fresh butter and vanilla. A round, seductive attack on the palate, delicately woody and reminiscent of toasted brioche. Fresh and tangy finish. Serve with oysters (tasted in 2021).

Pale gold colour with sparkling highlights. An engaging, typical nose, with accents of lime, wild flowers and a hint of herbs. A frank, full-bodied, generous Aligoté, with a lovely acidic feel. The fruit is crisp and present, with a very invigorating finish (tasted in 2020).
