Once prominently planted across Burgundy, Aligoté has yielded its share as other varietals took the stage. Today, the grape is making an exciting resurgence not only in Burgundy but also in the New World. Sourced from our La Belle Promenade Vineyard, our Aligoté expresses a lean, fresh, and vibrant addition to our white wine portfolio.
The 2022 La Belle Promenade Aligoté offers pronounced aromas of key lime, peach skin, Asian pear, and fresh garden herbs that fill the glass. Flavors mirror the aroma with added layers of citrus zest, young papaya and elderflower. A firm backbone of acidity creates a fresh and clean zippiness married with an intriguing sweet tart texture. This wine is a unique addition to the Flâneur Wines portfolio offering a bright and vibrant personality to the collection.
