Tasting Notes

The colour is lemon yellow with golden reflections of good intensity. The disc is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine presents youth. The nose is frank, pleasant and of good intensity. We perceive a predominantly flowery, then fruity scent, golden apple and pear. Airing amplifies these smells and reveals sweet almond, hops, button mushroom, wonderfully underlined by a fine fermentation character. The nose, still a little restrained, presents a ripe and racy profile. The health of the grapes is perfect. The attack on the palate is moderately full, the alcoholic base is full-bodied. It evolves on a tense, pearling environment, marked by the aromas of the nose. The flowers, the fruits, the sweet almond, the golden apple, the pear, the hops, the butter, the button mushroom. There is a hint of firm bitterness. The finish is medium, 5-6 caudalies, with fine liveliness and frank bitterness. Firm and powerful, the balance shows a beautiful virile character, supported by a range of racy aromas.

Winemakers Note

Even though the Pinot Blanc is very old (already known in the 16th century), it achieved its present reputation only during the last few years. This grape variety is not originating from the Bourgogne (Burgundy) region but comes from Northern Italy. It was first introduced by the Anglo-Saxons. The French then also discovered it gradually and they began to appreciate this wine for its qualities of freshness, suppleness and its food-friendliness.
