The thing about a great Aligoté is that (blind) it walks a tightrope between a great red and a great white burgundy – put it in a black tasting glass and see how many people guess wrongly the colour – this 80% old-vine aligoté (the rest is chardonnay, though from 2005 this cuvée is 100% aligoté) is just such a wine, only the lack of tannin might point to a white…
2001 Ponsot, Morey St.Denis 1er Clos des Monts Luisants Vielles Vignes try to find this wine...
A relatively deep yellow. A nose of toasted bread and spices and an undertow of creamy fruit. Lovely texture and singing acidity. The flavours straddle the border between sweet and savoury and have super length and intensity. Despite containing about 20% chardonnay, you’d never mistake it for one!
