From: Burgundy, France
Taste: Paquet's Bourgogne Aligoté blends the characteristics of both terroirs, revealing structure and elegance at the same time. Opulent citrus meets a light note of stone & just-ripened orchard fruits; they’re wrapped up in a flinty minerality that firms and lifts on the finish. Extremely pretty & a great example of the varietal.
Pairing: Because this wine shows off mineral flavors and palate-cleansing acidity (not unlike Chablis), it’s an extremely versatile food partner, pairing well with salty, fatty, slightly spicy, creamy, buttery, and fresh flavors. This wine would be excellent with an array of fresh vegetables, salads, and of course, shellfish or seafood of any kind (raw cold water oysters to shrimp scampi to grilled salmon or grouper). Soft cow’s milk cheeses, fresh goats milk cheese, fried anything, you get the idea. With fried food on the mind, we’re sharing Sue Li’s Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken with Fried Basil recipe for a particular pairing suggestion today— a bonus, it’s fried in tapioca flour & is gluten free!
This wine. The label stems from Agnes' desire to enhance the Aligoté grape variety, a variety that has long been criticised for its lack of complexity compared to its older brother Chardonnay.
This bottle demonstrates that, if properly cared for and processed, this grape variety is capable of expressing great qualities of elegance, fruit and complexity.
This wine takes its name from the two plots from which it comes :
LES PLUMES: Plot in the town of Meursault with predominantly clay soil.
THE TOPO DU CLOU: In the town of Meloisey, this young vine, on a hillside, next to our Hautes Côtes de Beaune Blanc, has a predominantly limestone terroir.
