Tasting Notes: Aligoté makes a nice alternative to its native regional cousin, Chardonnay. Certainly the lesser-known Burgundian white grape due to its more narrow spectrum of flavours, yet, can possess the same texture and pureness of fruit when handled minimally as they do at Chateau Des Charmes. Fresh, ripe, apple-medley flavours are complimented nicely by grapefruit acidity on the naturally, nearly full-bodied palate that finishes long with a touch of lime zest and light spice. Enjoy this wine in its youth as part of your regular summer patio-sipper rotation. Drink 2013-2014.
