2019 VDF 'Pétillant Naturel'
Sparkling. Aligoté from multiple plots in Savigny-lès-Beaune, Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, Pommard and Couchois. Disgorged after 6 months. Zero SO2.
Nice light yellow colour. Good bubbles. Smells like apples, lemons, and florals. Plus salt. Clean. No green which is nice, more apples – fresh crisp ones. Fun bubbles, dry, with a very tiny hint of residual – which makes it more approachable. Apples on the palate too. A hint of lemon and lime. Very summery and easy to drink. The balance between acidity and sweetness is perfect. Slightly briny. Chalky freshness. Medium plus acidity. Mineral finish. Very good, he’s so talented!
