I like how the British importer describes this:
Riper and less marked acidity than in cooler vintages, this still retains a flavoursome chalky, mineral character with a refreshing bitter lemon twist on the finish. Vinous, sapid, delicious.
Produced from grapes grown on clay-limestone and Kimmeridgian Portlandian soils, Aligoté is an early-ripening and high-acid grape variety. Traditional winemaking methods are employed to produce a fresh and delicately fragrant white.
In many ways, Aligoté from this area now makes a more typical “Chablis” style of dry white than Chardonnay does – as even when richer like this, it retains the fresh acid “cut” for which Chablis is famous.
And Domaine Felix, which dates back to 1690 (though they feel they likely go back to Roman times), is one of the very best estates in Saint-Bris.
