Domaine Fichet Bourgogne Aligoté 2019

Burgundy, FranceThis aligoté comes from a single hectare of vines planted in the Maconnais, planted in 1998 on clay/limestone soils. It was fermented and rested in stainless. This 2019 aligoté is quite ripe and forward, with lemon curd, ripe pear, flax, honeysuckle on a softer waxen palate. I think this suffers some from the scorching summer temperatures in Bourgogne in 2019, but is still a pleasant sipper now, ideally with salads or steamed clams.Tasted: 08 August 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: QC 22.80 SAQ Producer: Domaine FichetGrape: Aligoté
