350-litre barrels but not new. Bottled two days before this tasting (mid November). 'People are getting more interested in Aligoté', says Colin-Morey. 'Since 2017 we keep the grapes', from his own 55-year-old vines in Cormot in the Hautes-Côtes. Slightly pink skins. Unfiltered. No stirring on this or any of his whites.
Herbal steely nose, a touch of pear. Tight, piercing freshness with a lovely herbal direction. Long and tight. Steely finish. (JH)
