Burgundy’s other white grape at its fruitiest
Jancis Robinson suggested that this high-class version of Burgundy’s other white grape was the “d’Angerville wine for wine bars” as it had “quite a rich nose. Juicy and fruity…” In other words this is a wine for drinking and enjoying now.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Domaine Marquis d’Angerville is one of the most important producers in Burgundy with a long and storied history and a range of top wines, mainly Pinot Noir. Aligote is often described as the ‘other white grape’ of Burgundy, a poor relation to Chardonnay’s rich pedigree. But this biodynamic domaine treats all its wines with care and attention. This Aligote is a good example of this philosophy.
