Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Attractive bright lemon, straw colour, with a medium intensity of ripe grapefruit and greengages, with a light mineral edge. This Aligoté has a wonderful crisp acidity, balanced citrus fruit characters and a refreshing finish. This wine makes the perfect apéritif for any meal.
