Like Burgundian Aligoté, Jed Steele's version is sharp and lean, probably best used in a traditional kir (add crème de cassis and drink). The flavor profile is sharp and tart, offering just some lemon and orange pith. The basic finish is lengthy as it deals flavors of lemon and white peach. Interestingly, this wine has some overt oaky notes. Overall it's kind of strange and hard to pinpoint.
