Bourgogne Aligoté, Jérôme Galeyrand “Le Poirossot” 2020
In a place with millennia of wine-growing history, it’s funny that as Burgundy’s reputation and prices continue to swell it’s often the outsiders doing the most interesting work. Jérôme Galeyrand is one such producer- originally from the Loire, he worked in the food business before catching the wine bug in Gevrey. Now, that’s home base for his eponymous domaine.
His Aligoté represents everything we love about Burgundy’s “other” white variety. When poorly made, they can drink in a chubby manner. The Poirossot bottling from Galeyrand is round, yes, but extremely linear and mineral. Think triangles more than circles. Despite seeing time in oak, it’s refreshingly steely, too. This walks the ever-so-thin line between richness and crispness to perfection and will pair with just about anything you put on the table with it.
