2020 Les Cordères P & M Jacqueson
Excellent Aligoté from the only village with an appellation for it. Crackling with zip and zing - but seriously concentrated too. Really good feel, sleek and textured - the fruit is ripe but there is some savour too adding another dimension. Pears and white melon flesh. Powerful, full-bore Aligoté. From very old vines planted in 1937. 100% wood, but in neutral, old barrels of 5-7 years age. L&S (Nov 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
P & M Jacqueson
Domaine Jacqueson consists now of 18 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also 5 in Mercurey and some in Bouzeron. The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in classical fashion, before an élevage in barrel (up to 25% new wood). Under Paul, and now by his children, Marie and Pierre, the domaine has become adept at a sophisticated use of barrels, the élevage here is key to the quality they consistently achieve, and this rubs off on the négociant 'Cuvée Sélection' which is always beautifully finished.
As usual the élevage in barrel here is extremely precise and delicately done with around 20% new wood, the Premiers Crus getting barrels with a little more toast.
