Description of the wine Pinot Blanc 2013

Our Pinot Blanc is produced from our usual Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois blend (35%/65%) originating from both Herrenweg vineyard (50%) and Rotenberg vineyard (50%). This combination works perfectly as the later ripening red limestone of the Rotenberg brings structure and acidity, whether the warm precocious alluvial Herrenweg brings richness and aromatics. Pinot Blanc will probably become more important as it keeps a better acidity balance in warm vintages. In 2013, there was no such concern and it was easy to obtain the perfect balance for a dry wine.

Tasting notes

03/2015 : The nose shows elegant fresh citrus fruit with a delicate stony signature. Despite a long fermentation and early reductive nose, this wine is now open. The palate has a medium power with a surprising long finish. Enjoyable and drinkable style! Very dry but with a classic round finish and good acidity. Easy food companion!
