Olivier Leflaive 2017 Bourgogne Aligote

$ 21.99

Burgundy's "other" grape, Aligote is a delicious grape starting to gain traction in many other growing regions as it grows well in many climates.  A vibrant, sleek white, with apple, lemon and saline flavors focused by lively acidity. Balanced and long, this finishes with a salty tang. This shows finesse and brightness for an Aligote with lemon and green-mango character. Medium-bodied, dry and lively, this is a great example of the often underrated Aligote. It's decidedly Chablis-like, with just a tiny hint of stone fruit ripeness and a dash of Aligote's signature almond note.
