Domaine du Prieure Bourgogne Aligote, Burgundy, France, 2015


From the village of Savigny in the Côte de Beaune, Jean Michel Maurice takes pride in preserving the subtle influence of the terroir and varietal character in his white wines. White Burgundy made from the Aligoté grape variety is increasingly rare, especially in the area of Savigny where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay dominate. It is a fresh, easy drinking white with good balance and lively acidity, which makes it a fine accompaniment to seafood or on its own as an aperitif.
