Grapelive Daily Pick
By Kerry Winslow
2006 Domaine Perrot-Minot Aligote (White) Burgundy, France.
This fresh and crisp white is a steal, and I at first thought I misread the label vintage thinking it must be 2008, not 2006, as it was so bright and clean, but no this is just a super Aligote that has lots of life. The palate is green apple, citrus and white peach and it just screams for seafood or creamy cheeses. I have enjoyed Aligote many times, but this really is something very special, and comes from one of the best Domaines in Burgundy no less!
Aligote lovers unite and take over, this is your wine! So I would try Aligote if you have not, instead of a Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc, and if you can find this one, I’m sure you’d be very happy.
