Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Aligoté 2017 is agreeably fresh and spicy blend offering up notes of apple and lemon zest. There is both fine energy and intensity to the subtly mineral-inflected flavors that conclude in a very dry and youthfully austere finish.As Leroux notes, when Aligoté is afforded the same luxuries as Chardonnay the results can be impressive. His 2017 is lemon pithy and racy with juicy succulence, a hint of blackcurrant and a kiss of leesy, nutty creaminess. An impressive Aligoté and a textural, crisp and versatile white Burgundy

Leroux has considerable pedigree with this variety, as followers of Domaine Comte Armand will know. This year’s wine takes in two sources, with the same 90- to 100-year-old, goblet-pruned Aligoté vines from Bouzeron (Côte Chalonnaise) now joined by a parcel of 50-year-old Estate-grown fruit in Meursault’s Les Belle Roses. Both vineyards are home to Aligoté Doré, the high-quality, low-yielding cultivar of this variety whose skin takes on an ochre hue when fully ripe. The 2017 was naturally fermented in tank then aged in older barrels.
