Aligoté is a variety of white grape that has been used for a long time in Burgundy. It has been referred to as the “muscadet of Burgundy”. The area of cultivation is located in the Burgundy appellation zone on the plateaus that dominate the village and the plain heading towards Beaune. These light but good quality wines are liked for their freshness and lively taste. Their nose is very fruity. They are pleasant when very young and suit customers who are looking for a wine to drink quickly. They are often drunk as an aperitif; either straight or with blackcurrant liqueur (kir).
