Catherine & Claude Marechal, Aligote 2021
This wine comes across beautifully soft, yet still crisp, delicate and teasing as Aligoté is known to be. It is crisp from the 2021 vintage and possesses lovely acidity, crispness and refined balance with a fine expression of fruit that is not only attractive but displays good complexity. This is aged almost entirely in tank, is nicely concentrated and is very good value in the world of 'grower' Burgundy. AGWI
‘The quality of these wines is nothing short of phenomenal compared to the usual quality of the respective appellations’ Allen Meadows, Burghound
I very much love the style of the wines from Catherine and Claude Maréchal, as they are very classically styled wines that are long on their soil signatures and short on cellar tricks or irrationally exuberant use of new oak. The family does not work with the most exalted of appellations, but I have yet to have an example from Maréchal that was ever anything short of exemplary for its level and village. These are beautifully made wines that deserve a spot in any conscientiously stocked Burgundy cellar and are the absolute Promised Land for those who crave a bit of value in their Burgundy shopping.
John Gilman, A View from the Cellar
Claude Maréchal is a prime example of how the producer should be your first and most important focus in selecting wines. He has but a single premier cru, Les Lavières in Savigny-les-Beaune; other holdings are either Côte de Beaune village or regional appellations, yet he consistently produces wines of outstanding quality.
