Bouzeron Aligote

Great white Burgundy - we do not see too many Aligote wines in St. Louis

2019 Comte de Langeron Bouzeron Aligote...$24.99
Bouzeron is one of the five appellations in the Cote de Chalonnaise and the closest one to 
the Côte-d’Or (Bouzeron is a close neighbor of Rully and Chassagne-Montrachet) It was officially recognized in 1997 as a full-fledged Burgundian appellation village. The only appellation where the grape Aligote is the star.  Bouzeron only produces white wines and the only grape is Aligote.  Aligoté grape is a cross of Pinot Noir and Gouais (that no longer exists today).

Comted de Langeron Aligote has aromas of fresh peaches, white flowers, and green apples. On the palate, it is well balanced and creamy, but the wine is very pure with great focus and nice streak of acidity running through it.  Great crisp White Burgundy with a round mouthfeel!  Great bottle!

Classic Kir Cocktail
Created by the Mayor of Dijon, Kir is a popular French cocktail made with Aligote Wine and crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur)
