Domaine Rapet Bourgogne Aligoté is an exquisite French white wine, exuding a bright and lively character. This wine is crafted in the heart of Burgundy, where the Rapet family carries a noteworthy history in winemaking. The Aligoté grape, subtly underappreciated, brings an unpretentious charm to the bottle. Refreshing and light-bodied, it features engaging floral notes and a zesty citrus palate, accentuated by subtle hints of green apple and minerality. It exhibits a clean, crisp finish that lingers beautifully. A perfect accompaniment to seafood or goat cheese, Rapet's Bourgogne Aligoté exemplifies a supreme genuine expression of this typically French varietal.
