2022 Comte de Langeron Bourgogne Aligote

The other white grape of Burgundy : Aligote
Most White Burgundy is made from Chardonnay, but there is one more grape allowed and that is Aligote. Aligote is fresh and citrusy. Pairs nicely with grilled fish and seafood. Perfect with a wide assortment of salads and great which fresh goat cheese

2022 Comte de Langeron Bourgogne Aligote...$24.99
White golden color with noticeable green tints. The nose is fresh with aromas of green apples and lemons. On the palate, the wine is bright and very crisp, discreet yet satisfyingly supple with subtle aromas that linger  This wine is an excellent accompaniment to slightly spicy or salty dishes, or even fatty foods, as flavours tend to be softened by the fresh acidity of the wine. Excellent with meat, fried foods, charcuterie, seafood and goat's milk cheeses.

 Laurent vinfies his Aligoté the same way as his Chardonnays as he believes it has the potential to make great wines with complexity and longevity.  Lower yields and older vines!
