2012 Domaine Anne & Arnaud Goisot Bourgogne Aligoté "Vieille Vignes"
Once again, Anne & Arnaud's Aligoté have produced a crisp and refreshing Aligote. The 2012 is precise and fresh in character, but shows the ripeness of the vintage on the finish. It is open and appealing on the palate, with spice and freshness. Its character, while showing the pronounced acidity this varietal is known for, is surprisingly round and charming. This is classic Aligoté, but friendlier than is often the norm, and so delicious with seafood, or just for an aperitif. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy buyer)
