750ml Bottle

Tasting Comte Armand was one of the highlights of our 2018 Burgundy tastings. This small production white (only 250 cases made) was aged 12 Months in 2 to 4year old 500L barrels. A blend of a 10 year old vine in Volnay and a very old 90-year old vine of Aligoté in Meursault, look for a very beautiful balance of freshness , richness, precision and vividness. The esteemed Comte Armand domaine is located in Pommard in the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy. The wines are made from biodynamic vines, 100% de-stemmed with whole-grape fermentation, 20-30% new oak; the reds are unfined, unfiltered and the whites are fined and lightly filtered.

VinousThe 2018 Bourgogne Aligoté had been racked from barrels and was due for bottling. It has a richer bouquet than the 2017, offering honeycomb, light tangerine and white flower aromas. The palate is lively and citrus-driven on the entry, though I feel the 2017 has more complexity and tension on the finish.
