Al Shikoh

Pale yellow in color with aromas of lemon, green apple, and honey. Tart and mineral on the palate with slightly waxy texture and 12.5% alcohol. Made from the Golden Aligoté grape which finds its highest expression in Bouzeron where it is championed by Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of DRC. Imported by Kermit Lynch. Paired nicely with oysters.

Rocky like Mount Blanc, minerals like the Adriatic, almost salty (which I love). Grips in your mouth like one of those annoying locks on the bridges over the Seine. Perfect with briny, sweet seafood. Spectacular

Still the gold standard. Rich, elegant, persistent. Especially fresh in ‘15.

Rounded, richly savory and a little bit sour, the kind sour you get from touching a 9V battery to your tongue.

Nice Aligote from a great producer. Fatter in the mouth than expected, with white fruit and apricot. Quite full but still decent acid on the finish.

Aligote...so hot right now. Round and a bit viscous, grassy with some nice fragrant floral and stone fruit notes. Nice aperitif but prob not a rebuy at thirtyish bucks.
