Smith-Chapel Bourgogne-Aligoté

Aligoté, the grape of the people, unsung hero of the region. This is organically farmed Aligoté doré from the village of Igé, in the Mâconnais department of Burgundy. The vines are grown on a single-parcel of an east-facing slope with marl and calcaire soil, marking the wine with a saline-citrus note.
