Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée
Character of the wine
Aligoté wines are dry white wines, lively and fruity. They are bottled early in order to preserve their freshness and fruitiness. Their colour can be likened to white gold and their perfume is reminiscent of grapes and green apples. Their liveliness and acidity make them excellent as an appetizer or aperitif.
They are used in a traditional Burgundian kir (a blend of blackcurrant liqueur and white wine) and are ideal with snails or cooked ham with parsley.
