Aligoté is Burgundy's "other" white grape, more rarely encountered than Chardonnay; yielding light, citrusy wines. It is also the traditional base ingredient for the Kir cocktail.
- Body: Light
- Sweetness: Bone-Dry
- Tannin: Low/None
- Acidity: High
- Alcohol: 11.5–13.5% ABV
With lean, minerally flavors and palate-cleansing acidity, Aligoté does wonderfully alongside fish dishes and soupe, salads, and gooey cow's milk cheeses.
