Bourgogne Aligoté by François Carillon | 2017

$24.00

A historical Burgundian grape, Aligoté is experiencing a 21st century renaissance, and rightfully so, thanks to the producers who have devloped patience with its finicky, late-ripening personality. Passed down from generation to generation since the early 1600s, the Carillon name in Burgundy has deep clout, and starting with the 2010 vintage, the estate was divided between the sons (both superb producers). This 2017 Aligoté is from François and is a go-to classic, bottling-up the best of Burgundian terroir with fennel seed, white stones, lemon skin, spiced apple, and whiffs of toasted hazelnut.
