This regional appellation may be cultivated throughout wine-growing Burgundy. The appellation covers a surface area of approximately 1,400 hectares.
The Aligoté grape is very famous in Burgundy and for a long time it's been only related to its use in the fabrication of the Kir (an Aperitif also very famous, made with Bourgogne Aligoté and Crème de Cassis, our regional blackcurrant liqueur).
But this varietal has been known in Burgundy since the 17th century, and it is increasingly considered as a qualitative grape and treated as such (low yields, vinification using oak barrels, etc).
The grapes were vinified in low-temperature stainless steel tanks so that we keep all the freshness and tension of the varietal in the wine.
Then, the wine was aged on its lees in stainless steel tanks for about 6 months in order to get a little roundness in the wine and develop more complexity.
Will be a great companion to slightly spicy or salty dishes such as meat, fried foods, chitterling sausages, seafood and goat's milk cheeses.
2 to 3 years to appreciate its freshness.
Serve ideally between 10° and 12°C / 50°-54°F.
