Domaine Cornu is a family operation with Alexandre Cornu serving as the fourth generation winemaker. The estate covers 19 hectares of wines across 14 different appellations. One of their prized wines is this Bourgogne Aligote. Aligote is a little known variety grown in Burgundy that understandably doesn't get a lot of attention next to the leading white varietal, Chardonnay. Aligote typically prodcues a very light wine, pale in color with good acidity. This 2012 is all that and then some with a note of red fuji apple along with lime citrus and a bit of minerality. It is very thirst quenching and crisp and would be a great pairing with light salads and raw shellfish. Or, as it's used in France in a Kir with a splash of Creme de Cassis.
