About the Wine Elegant, well-balanced, and dry with bright fruit, it combines freshness and suppleness and offers very good palate presence. The origin is the domaine vineyard, Clos des Capucins, and a plot in the Cuvée Laurence vineyard. 70% Auxerrois providing body and structure, and 30% Pinot Blanc providing crispness.
Terroir Older vines in our monopole Clos des Capucins vineyard composed of sandy silt soil on granite pebbles; a plot in the Cuvée Laurence vineyard, at the foot of the Altenbourg. The grapes growing in this terroir ripen much earlier, producing wines with complex aromatics and a powerful concentration.
Farming Organic and Biodynamic (certified by Ecocert & Demeter). Short pruning of the vines to keep yields low.
Harvest & Winemaking Hand-picked at optimum maturity to reinforce the aromatic expression and body of the wines. Gently pressed in whole clusters in pneumatic presses then fermentation with indigenous yeasts (an element of the terroir that enhances depth and complexity in the wines) in old oak vats.
Tasting Note This vibrant Pinot Blanc launches with delicate aromas of orchard fruits and white blossoms. Wellstructured, crisp, and perfectly balanced as a result of an interesting contrast between the freshness of the acidity and the ripeness of the fruit. Ending on a firm and persistent finish.
Food Pairing A welcome addition to any gathering, best served chilled as an aperitif or with a refreshing lunch. Great with quiche, onion pie, fish terrine, cheese soufflé, light appetizers, and grilled chicken.
