DOMAINE CHEVROT - Cheilly-les-Maranges, Bourgogne Aligote 2007White French Burgundy
The aligote grape variety is exclusive to the Burgundy region and produces marvelous wines when treated with care. This 2007 is proof of that.
An initial bouquet of lime and flint, similar to a sauvignon. After a little airing, hints of rose and orange complete the nose.
In the mouth, it is sharp with vivacity and fluidity, with a long aromatic ending, prolonging the pleasure with tinges of lightly peppered citrus fruits.
Ready to drink, the aligote will complement goats' cheese or oysters, unless you fancy going all out with sushi or a tuna carpaccio.
