The wine is aged in vats on the lees to preserve all the fruit. It is bo led a er 10 to 12 months. This wine should be drunk young (1 to 3 years) to appreciate its floral, fruity bouquet.
It will accompany well-seasoned or spicy dishes, such as local special es of gougères, Burgundy snails and jambon persillé.
Burgundy Aligoté served with a splash of crème de cassis is the classic white wine used to make kir, the tradi onal local aperi f.
