Combines lovely richness with an impression of energy, displaying terrific spicy depth and saline soil tones. Finishes slatey and very long. Amazing Aligoté, from a normal yield of about 42 hectoliters per hectare. Beginning with the 2015 vintage, the estate has introduced some younger vines to the mix, so the blend now averages "just" 80 years of age and the label will say Vieilles Vignes rather than Très Vieilles Vignes. This east-facing vineyard avoids the afternoon sun, which allows the fruit to maintain freshness, noted Rose-Marie Ponsot, who added that the last vintage of this wine to contain any Chardonnay was 2004. And of course, the Pinot Blanc from Domaine Gouges that was planted here in the early 1950s is no longer in the wine. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse

Decanter,
The world’s only premier cru Aligoté, from vines nearly 110 years old, with 24 months in old oak. This is pure and vivacious, lemon and chalk, but ineffably elegant, its acidity in check. Still very young. Read more... expand The world’s only premier cru Aligoté, from vines nearly 110 years old, with 24 months in old oak.
