Why Buy Me
For many years Aligoté (Burgundies lesser known white grape) has been best considered a perfect partner for creme de cassis in making a Kir.
Such was the lean dry and mean reputation of this grape variety that many felt it's best chance was to be blended with the intense rich fruit flavours of creme de cassis.
Crisp and dry,herbaceous with green apple crunch and pear fruit character, ideally served with a heavy cream, butter or oil based dishes. The acidity is refreshing to the point of bracing and lively. The finish is stony and mineral in style.
Production of this white is very limited, so awards and reviews are in scant supply. However the wine-making nous at Domaine Michel Noellat is such that all the wines they produce have elegance and balance in spades.
