L'Etrangère Aligoté 2020

Bourgogne Aligoté AOC

Less than 6% of Burgundy's vineyards are planted to Aligoté, but perhaps, one day, it'll outshine Chardonnay! L'Etrangère is an exceptional wine from a small family estate, using grapes from just outside Meursault. Creamy with intense lemony zip.

Aligoté used to be regarded as Chardonnay's poorer cousin, but today some famous Burgundy names are making top wine from it. In fact, it's the style Burgundians love to drink. With warmer temperatures, the grape ripens better, retaining intense freshness, but with rounder peach notes too. L'Etrangère was a chance find from our buyer Mark Hoddy. It's from the Point family in Vergisson, whose owner was widowed in 1903 at just 26. Needing to support her son, she got out into the vineyards and learnt it all from the ground up. In 1904, she won her first medal. Her great grandaughter, Géraldine, now in charge is equally talented. The vineyards lie next door to Meursault and close to Puligny; no wonder quality is high. Superb solo or with fish.

"Aligoté can offer a vibrancy Chardonnay cannot and at a sensible price point. An exceptional find" Mark Hoddy
