Alcohol by volume: 12.5%
Price at time of purchase: $10.41 (North Berkeley Wine Imports)

While Aligote is often looked down upon, this fine wine from Dureuil-Janthial is absolutely delicious. Intriguing nose displays orange/lemon citrus fruit along with yeast, pears, herbs, and a nice floral touch. Crisp and pure in the mouth. Outstanding for the price. (Purchased in an excellent mixed-case holiday special at North Berkeley. Normal retail price would be somewhat higher.) - HK 2008-02-22
