Good Aligote, not great Aligote. Matchstick aromas, fairly round palate. Low complexity and modest acidity.

White Peppers, white flowers and tangerine, a small acidity and a good minerality. From Fichenet

Wow. Great entry wine from Fichet. Surprising acid and broad shoulders. Easily best example of this forgotten and abused grape.

Well made wine just no fireworks. Carries Fichet's signature style of precision and tension between fruit, mineral & acidity but didn't quite inspire the wide mouth grin.

More fleshed out than when tasted previously, but arguably soft-er, not very complex, and moderately short finish. Getting it done as far as "mouth rinse" but not as impressive as many other Aligote.

Vin de soif crossing into something more complex. Good acid, surprisingly round. Flowers, green apple. Aligoté with shoulder pads, and all the better for it.
