Aligote Wine Details
Price: $10.00 per bottle

Description: Produced in Washington State, this dry refreshing wine is the perfect complement to seafood and light pasta dishes. Floral, with hints of butter, citrus and honey.

Varietal Definition
The second white grape of Burgundy and very much the 'poor relation' of Chardonnay. Originally used as a blending wine with Chardonnay, it is now producing some interesting varietal wines thanks to stainless steel fermentation and modern vinification methods. Somewhat tart and acidic, it is considered the ideal base wine for the French aperitif, Kir.
