Beaujolais Blanc is certainly not as common or plentiful as the Beaujolais Rouge. The main reason for this is because winemakers are prohibited from planting more than 10% of any white varietals, so most wineries don't bother growing them. However, some estates have excellent terroir for Aligote or Chardonnay. Pascal, Marie-Agnès, and Jean-Philippe Granger grow 54 acres of Gamay in Juliénas, Chenas, St. Amour, plus a mere 2.5 acres of Chardonnay in Leynes (not far from Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran). 

Flavor Profile: Medium-bodied, dry. Flowers, citrus, minerals, and green apples. Pair with fish, roast poultry, butter sauces, potatoes gratin.
