Ramonet Bourgogne Aligote 2002
17 Apr 2020
This is a rare grape varietal coming from the land of burgundy primarily producing Chardonnay dominated wines. I don’t have a lot of experience with the producers of this grape varietal, and I understood the best producer was Ponsot, although I didn’t have a chance to taste the elusive Ponsot Aligote yet. I do enjoy this Ramonet’s Aligote, bouquet was slightly premox with slight sugarcane nose. However, the content wasn’t affected with the premox, although it was slightly fat and rich, it wasn’t oxidized. A really appealing fatness and ripeness that caresses my tongue, and towards finishing it tapered down to a skinnier style. It’s probably a combination of a good vintage of 2002 and the style of Ramonet’s winemaking to create such an appealing wine.
