Aleth’s domaine is comprised of very old plantings in Pommard Villages, Beaune-Clos des Mouches, and three Pommard Premier Crus - Charmots, Epenots, and Rugiens-Bas. The latter two are parcels planted in 1906, some of Burgundy’s first post-phylloxera re-plants. Aleth’s wines are as graceful and elegant as the woman herself. Yields are kept extremely low in the vineyard and new oak is kept to no more than 33%. Some whole-cluster fermentation is employed depending on the vintage. Sees website of Scott Paul Wines in Oregon who imports the wines for more information.

I am going to seek out the wines for my own cellar. Reviewed August 6, 2007 ARTICLE »
