2019 Anne Boisson Aligote
Previously released under the Domaine Boisson-Vadot label, wines from their holdings are now made and presented under the labels of Bernard Boisson's children; his son Pierre Boisson and daughter Anne Boisson. While the two children vinify separately, they share the same cellar in Meursault, and produce wines that are more similar than they are different. Vine age is impressive, with many plots over 60 years old, and no herbicides or fertilisers used. Wines are fermented wild in barrel, thereafter raised in oak for 19-22 months, with no more than 30% new oak used predominantly for the top cuvées.
Anne Boisson produces this Aligote from a single-vineyard, with two-thirds of the vines aged between 50 and 70 years old.
The 2019 Bourgogne Aligoté is performing especially well, delivering aromas of waxy pear, toasted nuts and citrus oil, followed by a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and lively palate that concludes with chalky grip. Readers might think of it as a more concentrated version of the 2017. Drink 2021 - 2029.
