Review and Tasting


Sampled on 23/02/2021

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma:

Galia melon skin, raw celery, green apple, and wet chalk with faint lemon.

Taste:

Cleansing tart lemony acidity with celery, artichoke, flinty minerality, and light apple fruitiness.

Aftertaste:

Long tart citrusy finish.

Overall:

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.
