A fresh shipment of wines from Tassie based Natural wine importers, Living Wines, has arrived. The notes below are provided by them:
The Allez Goutons is a beautiful white wine made from Aligoté, one of our favourite white wine grapes.
This wine is made by Dominique as an early drinking style to be consumed within a couple of years of being made.
If you are a fan of this grape variety then you certainly should give this wine a try. Despite the fact that it is a drink-now style it has incredible complexity and very good length.
For this vintage we see Dominique handing over the reins to young rising star Julien Altaber, and Julien’s talent can be seen in the quality of the wine. The wine is still sold under the Derain banner, but if you look closely at the fine print you can see that Julien, who runs the Sextant domaine, now has begun to produce this cuvée.
