The Aligoté is the traditional white grape of Burgundy. It gained historical note in the 1940s when the then Mayor of Dijon, Canon Felix Kir, expressed such a liking for Aligoté mixed with a measure of crème de cassis that it was named after him.

A pale yellow colour, the Burgundy Aligoté reveals a very aromatic nose of fresh almonds and quince. This balanced and straight wine has a lovely mineral taste on the finish.
