Leroy Bourgogne Aligote 2015
23 May 2020
First time I’ve ever had an Aligote produced by Mdm Bize Leroy, quite a unique experience. Bouquet was slightly smoky, almost like a Puligny Montrachet Clos de la Mouchere, and very faint minty nose. The palate was initially sharp and attacking, but only during the first two sips, it quickly mellowed down and turned out to be rounded, with a lack of acidity and relatively feminine. It wasn’t as impressive as I would expect, definitely not at Ramonet or Ponsot’s Clos de Mont Luisant level.
