      All about aligoté

      Refreshingly simple, aligoté is a wine grape turned white wine from Burgundy that doesn’t get much attention. In fact, it’s often called the “other” white wine of Burgundy, being constantly overshadowed by the beloved Chardonnay that beckons from the same region. Despite its popularity, aligoté is a light, citrusy wine that is delicious on its own, and is known to be a staple for the french cocktail, Kir.

      What does aligoté taste like?

      Aligoté has primary flavors from fruits like apples and peaches, with a hint of herb. So, this wine can be very tart. It leans on the dry, light bodied side, and is highly acidic. Typically, aligoté wines range between 11.5 - 13.5% ABV.

      How to serve

      True to white wines, aligoté is best served chilled, under 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This wine tends to taste better when young, so it’s advised to purchase a bottle between 1-3 years old, served in a typical white wine glass. Its flavors and body lend itself to pairing well with smoked fish dishes, dumplings, salads and cheeses.
