Domaine Chevrot et Fils Aligote “Tilleul” 2017

$69.00 inc. GST

The bouquet is at the same time rose floral, fruity with lemon and ripe gooseberry and spiced with hints of curry and saffron. Swirling reveals notes of mellow oak and coffee. The palate is enchanting with its vivacity and fruit intensity, gooseberry to the fore, and infinitely persistent in its freshness and lemon fruit.

Its cuvee ”Tilleul” is exclusive to the domain, from a parcel of aligoté situated just opposite the property. This parcel receives treatment specific to it: foliage is raised to increase maturity, soils are worked by horse and ageing is for15 months in Burgundy oak barrels. For the 2015, the nose is with aromas of apple and pear, tinged with fresh nuts and saffron. On the palate, the wine surprises by its power and straightness, with its silky and persistent central thread of lemon, gooseberry and ginger. The grape variety recalls its minerality in a lively but as-ripe-as-you-like finish. ”Tilleul” surpasses itself in general with oriental cuisines, but this year you can attempt to duel with sashimis or sushis.
