Sylvain Pataille Aligoté – Aligoté is my go to when I can’t afford a Grand Cru
It’s undeniable – wine geeks everywhere wish we could drink more Grand Cru Burgundy than we can ever get our hands on or afford. Luckily for us, Aligoté is a delicious and more cost effective alternative to super bougie Grand Cru bottlings. Unknown to many, there are actually two main clones of Aligoté grown in Burgundy: Aligoté Vert, which accounts for almost all of the modern plantings and Aligoté Doré, the pre-clonal version of the grape. There is very little Aligoté Doré left in Burgundy, but some of the little that is left shows it’s elegance and complexity in this particular single-vineyard bottling by Sylvain Pataille. This wine has incredible textural complexity, from the energetic saltiness to the racy acidity. You can expect an almost Chablis-esque reductiveness on the nose, following by notes of apple, anise, verbena, and some pretty alpine freshness. This wine is delicious and versatile, perfect to drink on its own, with sushi or salad, or simply use it to drop the jaws of other Burgundy freaks to the floor.
