Bourgogne Aligoté 2021 - Domaine Goubard

Exclusive to Burgundy, Aligoté is the second white grape variety grown in Burgundy after Chardonnay.

Aligoté wine was made famous thanks to the famous aperitif of Canon Kir: Crème de Cassis and white wine.

The Aligoté grape variety, which gives this wine its name, is known to be more resistant and productive than Chardonnay. It makes it possible to make a fresh and fruity wine, very pleasant as an aperitif (with or without crème de cassis) but also as an accompaniment to seafood or shellfish. It is a wine to drink young, within 3 to 4 years after harvest.

Domaine Goubard produces a renowned Burgundy Aligoté that is regularly award-winning. A fresh and charming wine with a pale gold colour and aromas of apple and white flowers. A note of hazelnut also appears in the finish.

Unlike most Aligoté, this wine offers a very harmonious balance, with a remarkably controlled acidity. This terroir of southern Burgundy is undoubtedly for many, combined with the talent of the winegrower.

Fermentation at low temperature in stainless steel tanks.

The old vines of this cuvée give it a beautiful tension and dynamism.

White wine of golden color with slight green reflections, both fresh,

Direct and tonic with bright, lemony and green apple notes, as well as good persistence and tension.

If it is perfect as an aperitif, it also accompanies Burgundy dishes such as marbled ham or snails in shell but also seafood (oysters)

Operating temperature: 10 to 12 °

Bourgogne Aligoté

Wine Characteristics

Bourgogne aligoté is a delicious white wine that is young, stylish and is a little different. It is pale gold in color and offers a well-balanced taste, and ranges from a fruity bouquet with notes of apple and lemon to a more floral palette. In the mouth, this vibrant wine tickles the taste buds.

Wine Steward’s Tip

Although Bourgogne aligoté is traditionally associated with drinking Kir, the local Bourgogne specialty of white wine mixed with crème de cassis blackcurrant liqueur, it has its own qualities and deserves to be enjoyed in its own right. It is a perfect match for grilled fish, and its liveliness and citrus notes stand up well to the saltiness of oysters and strong goat cheese.
Bourgogne aligoté is one of the rare wines that does not overpower salads, tabouleh or steamed vegetables. It is also a worthy companion to traditional local creations such as gougères pastries, snails with garlic butter and jambon persillé, a terrine of cold ham in parsley aspic.
Serving temperature: 11 to 12°C.
 

Situation

The Aligoté grape has been grown in Bourgogne since the 17th century and flourishes here. Whether from the Saône-et-Loire, the Côte-d’Or or the Yonne, it faithfully reflects the diversity of its terroirs. It was granted its own AOC, Bourgogne aligoté, in 1937.

Terroirs

Although it is planted in very different winegrowing areas, the Aligoté grape is generally found on limestone soils, often combined with marl or clay. Aligoté is also suited to hilly locations and higher altitudes.
