Domaine Michel Lafarge is one of the most respected houses in Burgundy. This is his Aligote, a small-production white grape in the Burgundy region, grown on the bottom of the hills because of its ability to adapt to colder and wetter climates. Lafarge is proud of his Aligote and produces a beautiful bottling. "Raisins Dores", the "Golden Grapes", are from very old vines of Aligote Dore, a high-quality clone of the grape (contrasted with the vigourous but less complex Aligote Vert), which produces clusters of small, gold-tinged fuit. An enticing nose, light, crisp, notes of herbs.
