Another great option from Burgundy with an Irish touch
This exquisite expression of Burgundy's "Second" white is fragrant, floral and precise, yet elevates above its peers courtesy of Róisín's meticulous vinification. High acidity is complemented by delectable flavors of white and green-fruit, culminating in a lengthy finale. An extraordinary Burgundy made from Aligoté: it's one-of-a-kind.
- Floral yet delicate
- Only 11.5% alcohol
Food Pairing: This wine's impeccable acidity softens the flavors of spicy and salty dishes and fatty foods, making it an ideal accompaniment. It pairs especially well with meat, fried foods, chitterling sausages, seafood, and goat's milk cheeses.
Cellaring: Enjoy now and over the next three to five years.
STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Róisín's vineyards largely practice organic farming, including with this wine, and the vinification is minimalist, allowing the land and variety to express themselves.
Regular forays to the area and ongoing connections with the growers ensure complete oversight of the procedure, resulting in such remarkable quality. The growers' response is unsurprisingly enthusiastic, the utmost honor that could be earned.
Róisín is a multifaceted figure, serving as a winemaker, micro-negotiant, pharmacist in Ballyhaunis, County Mayo, and ultimately a Master of Wine.
