Aligoté

In North America, Aligoté’s cold-weather tolerance has provided it with homes in Washington State, British Columbia and Ontario, as well as some temperate areas of California. More cold-resistant than its big sister, Chardonnay, Aligoté is widely grown in the cold climes of Eastern European wine-producing countries such as Russia. In Eastern Europe Aligoté is a highly regarded varietal for still and sparkling wines alike. Possessing similar, but less pronounced, character than Chardonnay, it is usually lighter in weight, more acidic and less age worthy. In its Burgundian homeland, this white grape is often restricted to cool hilltops, among other less ideal locations in the Côte D’Or. Aligoté wines from Burgundy command only a fraction of Chardonnay prices for growers. Aligoté’s influence more broadly in France is diminishing and total plantings dropping.

    Wine review by luca chevalier


  • Too bad there's not a category like "Wine and Celebrities" that I could post ... Morgon and a Bourgogne Aligote--both French, not exactly locavore.

  • This wine was a little too sweet even for me. It did have a great fruity flavor though. Being a novice, I wonder if anyone can recommend a red that is full flavored yet somewhat sweet. Read More
