2018 Domaine de Villaine Aligoté Bouzeron

SKU #1502815 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A fresh, crystalline white, this offers lemon, green apple, almond and salty mineral flavors. Though rich, it is detailed and well-defined by vibrant acidity. Shows fine balance and length, leaving a hint of wild herbs on the finish. Drink now through 2025. Inner quote mark (8/2021)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of green apple, pear, white flowers and beeswax introduce the 2018 Bouzeron, a medium-bodied, racy wine with an elegantly satiny attack, bright acids and a long, precise finish. This is a touch more demonstrative out of the gates than the 2017 rendition, but it retains plenty of cut in this warm year and should age well. I met the thoughtful Pierre de Benoist a few days before France went into lockdown due to COVID-19, and it was a pleasure to taste these new releases from Domaine de Villaine. As ever, the wines deliver what followers of this address have come to expect: tensile, mineral wines that are refined and understated. This was also my first encounter with one of the domaine's new wines from Rully, where they have become major landholders and will soon be able to offer an enviably complete portfolio of the village's finest terroirs.

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "There is just one cuvée made, though normally with two bottling dates, for reasons of volume: they have 9ha of Aligoté in Bouzeron. Fine pale colour with a green tint. Fine and fresh detailed nose here, all about the fruit with several layers, not tangy. The sunshine of the vintage shows in the softer fleshier finish. Tasted: February 2020."
