2017 Armand Heitz, Bourgogne-Aligoté, "Ostinato Rigore"
WORIGIN: Burgundy, France
The very young Armand Heitz directs this small but growing 5 ha domaine that he farms biodynamically. The domaine’s roots descend to 1857 when it was substantially larger (more than 20 ha) but over time bits and pieces were either sold or leased to others. As to the winemaking, Heitz noted that the harvest is done manually with sorting done in the vineyards themselves. Zippy and bright, fresh and clean. A spicy and overtly citrus-suffused nose offers plenty of freshly sliced green apple scents. The racy, intense and beautifully detailed flavors possess a highly refreshing finish that is at once lemony, very dry and inviting. To enjoy young and a great warm weather sipper.
Food Recommendation: Great with Venison, Squid ink Risotto
