Exploring Burgundy's Aligoté with Eric Asimov

The aligoté grape is almost reflexively dismissed as inconsequential or acidic, better spiked with crème de cassis to make the aperitif kir than considered fine wine. Yet when grown with care and respect, and made conscientiously into wine, aligoté can be beautifully rich and minerally, and can age for years. Great Burgundy producers like Roulot, Pillot, Ente, Lafarge, Ponsot and Leroy, just to name a few, grow aligoté even though they could make more money with other grapes, and Aubert de Villaine's family makes wonderful aligoté in Bouzeron. Join New York Times Senior Wine Editor, Eric Asimov to taste the reason why so many Burgundy producers still love this scorned grape.
