Review and Tasting

Clear, pale golden.
Galia melon skin, raw celery, green apple, and wet chalk with faint lemon.
Cleansing tart lemony acidity with celery, artichoke, flinty minerality, and light apple fruitiness.
Long tart citrusy finish.
Cleansing tart and dry. The fact that Aligoté is a relation of Chardonnay tells in the flavour. Perfect for mixing with crème de cassis in a Kir Aperitivo.
