Willie Carter

Aligoté ain’t Chardonnay but it shouldn’t be ignored either. Especially not when in the hands of a master. An explosive nose featuring apples and citrus immediately upon opening with violets and other floral accents. A touch of lemon peel and vanilla for good measure.

Punching well above its weight, this is a lovely wine that’s perfect pretty much anytime. Edgy with high acid and a ton of character, sans the deep complexity. Not for contemplation, for consuming. Fruity and generous on the palate. Smoke, apples, and dried herbs. This is not a bottle that lasts very long once it’s opened, so stock up.
