Bourgogne Aligote, a wine from Burgundy France Vineyards

Bourgogne Aligoté is an Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) for white wine produced from the Aligoté grape variety in the region of Burgundy in France.

The wines tend to be light and acidic in style, and are usually unoaked, in contrast to many of Burgundy’s more common and more noted Chardonnay-based white wines. Bourgogne Aligoté is frequently mixed together with Crème de cassis to make kir, a traditional pre-dinner drink.

It is fine with grilled sausages, grilled fish, oysters, salads ; it shall be served lightly chilled, and can be kept 2 to 3 years.
