    DESCRIPTION

    The inconspicuous Aligoté is a refreshing gem of a white wine grown in the rolling hills of Burgundy. Known for its crisp and dry-but-fruity profile, this unique white grape grows on the tops and bottoms of Burgundy's sloping vineyards. The wines are terroir-driven with the lively acidity of Chablis.

    The Aligoté grape has been grown in Burgundy for centuries. Before phylloxera, in the 1800s, Aligoté was often intermingled with Chardonnay in the best vineyards. When growers replanted, they mostly replaced Aligoté vines with Chardonnay.

    While Aligoté is still a relatively unknown varietal of Burgundy, it has gained momentum in recent years as sommeliers, in-the-know consumers and well-known publications like Wine Enthusiast and The New York Times have started to talk about it as a great, value-driven wine.

    TASTING NOTES

    Aromas of stone fruits like nectarine and peach are followed by fresh herbs on the nose. On the palate this wine has a beautiful minerality and acidity that leaves your mouth watering for more. With lean, mineral-driven flavors and bright acidity, Aligoté pairs exceptionally well with shellfish, fish dishes and cow's milk cheeses.
