2020 Burgundy: Aligoté & Passetoutgrains

2020 Burgundy: Aligoté & Passetoutgrains
Superb value for money!

Our 2020 Burgundy campaign is drawing to a close, if you still haven’t placed your order, please contact us by 10th February.
In the meantime, here are some excellent ‘alternative’ wines for you to consider, a 2020 Aligoté from Paul Pillot and a 2020 Passetoutgrains from Gagnard-Delagrange which offer superb value for money.
Thierry Pillot is the fourth generation to take on the reins at Domaine Paul Pillot. He has made a name for himself as one of Burgundy’s most exciting white wine makers and this very refreshing Aligoté is a classic example of his focused, terroir driven style. A grape that was first recorded in Burgundy in the 18th century, and is still planted almost exclusively there, Aligoté is undergoing something of a resurgence. In the right hands, it produces deliciously energetic wines.
Gagnard-Delagrange is one of Chassagne-Montrachet’s best domaines. Famous for its elegant whites, it produces some wonderful reds too including this excellent Passetoutgrains – so delicious when we tasted last year that we insisted on buying a full barrel. Unlike other Burgundy wines, which are primarily produced from a single grape, Passetoutgrains is made from Gamay and Pinot Noir, the Gamay giving refreshing crunchy red fruit to the blend, perfect in a warm vintage such as 2020.

Please contact us to purchase the last few remaining cases while you can.

Grown from a small plot around Chassagne-Montrachet and aged for about a year in barrel, this is remarkably elegant and refreshing – a favourite at Bancroft Wines. Drink from 2022.’ Bancroft Note
