You can't get much more iconoclastic than a post-modern skin-contact Aligote made in a 100 year-old Burgundian cellar.
Labels and descriptions aside, this is just a delicious wine, with the resurgent Aligote grape seen here with three weeks of skin contact, then fermented and matured in concrete.
It's fresh and tangy with tropical and citrus fruits and a chewy bitter twist. A burgundian summer cocktail with very minimal inputs but has the length and class to please natural and fine wine lovers alike.
