The grape

Aligote, a white grape variety from France, is relatively obscure in the global wine market, and its charms are not widely known. However, it produces excellent wines. Aligote is commonly cultivated in Romania, with 5,065 hectares as of 2023.

It is the most representative white grape variety of the Dobrogea region, with 854 hectares as of 2023. At Daniel’s Wine Club, we highly recommend any Aligote wine from this region. It is really worth a try.

Tasting notes

  • Appearance
    A healthy, bright medium lemon color.
  • Nose
    It has a fresh and rich floral aroma, with nuances of acacia, elderflower, and chamomile, along with hints of green apple, white peach, and pear-like fruits, showcasing a complexity rarely found in this price range. It also exhibits mineral notes derived from limestone soils reminiscent of wet stones and flint.
  • Palate
    It carries nuances of green apple, citrus, and hay. The balance between fresh and vibrant acidity and moderate fruitiness is beautifully achieved. It has a rounded and gentle flavor profile, with excellent mineral undertones providing structure. While maintaining a dry taste, it offers a subtle sweetness derived from the fruit, enticing the appetite. It embodies the typical characteristics of Aligote, unique to this region.
  • Food pairing
    It pairs well with a wide range of dishes and is perfect as a table wine. It particularly complements herb-roasted white fish, nanbanzuke (Japanese fish marinated in vinegar), caponata, grilled chicken, salads with yogurt dressing, and fresh cheeses. It also pairs nicely with various Japanese dishes.
