    For the Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Aligote 2016 vintage, Benjamin took a parcel of 100 year old, goblet pruned Aligoté Doré. This is high-quality, low-yielding cultivar in Bouzeron (Côte Chalonnaise). Before bottling, the wine was finished in stainless steel.

    "The 2016 Bourgogne Aligoté is a new addition to the range and comes from old vines. Benjamin had a lot of empty barrels and so he thought it would be a good opportunity to "park" some Aligoté instead of risking the barrels drying out and becoming unclean. It has a light perfumed bouquet with dried honey and tangerine notes. The palate is balanced with a smooth opening, a touch of spice and a brisk, slightly saline finish. This is a fine debut." 86 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate #234
