Produced 'traditionally' by winemaker Jean Michel Lihrmann. This 100% Pinot Blanc is blended from 80% Pinot Blanc Auxerrois and 20% Pinot Blanc. The grapes are selected from vineyards with diverse soils - limestone, granite, gravel, marl and sandstone - which impart different characters and styles to the overall blend, and harvested by hand and machine, depending on site. Pneumatic pressing, temperature controlled fermentation, no fining and light filtration before bottling - all to preserve fruit and aromatic qualities and elegance. His philosophy is to make wines with good acidity and fruit balance.
This wine has a perfumed nose with hints of lemon. The palate is well balanced and delicate with more ripe lemon and citrus notes.
For any occasion when you want a dry white that is very drinkable; but seafood, fish, salads and entrees would all work too.
