Château des Charmes 2008 Aligoté - 86pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Production: 2000 cases
Date Tasted: July 31st, 2010
Tasting Notes: A straightforward and refreshing white wine made from the "other" white Burgundy grape, Aligoté. Aromatic notes of flowery perfume are supported by strong mineral and stonefruit aromas on the nose. Crisp, tart lemon zest and grapefruit flavours on the dry palate. A touch of spice lingers on the moderate finish.
The perfect wine to expand your palate with while not breaking the bank. Enjoy with a hot, sunny deck or when you want to be reminded of a hot, sunny deck. Drink 2010-2011.
