Domaine Guilhem et Jean-Hugues Goisot Aligoté
Aligote is the lesser known white grape in the Burgundy region. In the territory of France where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are king and queen, Aligote is often overlooked and accounts for only 6% of the wine grown there. We are big fans of this grape that often provides wines of tremendous value in a region known for its inaccessible pricing. When we came across the Goisot family’s bottle, we knew it was too delicious not to share and immediately put it into our wine subscription. Organically and biodynamically farmed, hand picked, native yeast fermentation, unoaked, and aged on the lees. It is full of bright acidity and lovely floral, lemon custard, and apple notes. Pair it with grilled fish, a plate of salty oysters or some local goat cheese. Or just mix yourself a Kir (a blend of Aligote and creme de cassis) and call it a day!
