A bright pale yellow colour with light gold reflections. A delicate nose which evokes fresh yellow fruits and also offers some notes of citrus fruits. A silky entry followed by a good development on the palate with a full body and a nice lingering finish on a touch of freshness. This full-bodied and fresh wine with fine and sober flavors is particularly easy to drink and to pair. This is an ideal all-purpose wine. A refreshing aperitif, or a clean-tasting complement to all kinds of dishes (assorted tapas, cold meats, pies, salads, asparagus, mild cheeses).

Wine AdvocateCultivated in the cool Munster valley (which was named Val Saint Gregorie until the Protestant reform 500 years ago), the 2016 Pinot Blanc Val Saint Gregorie opens with a very clear, intense and concentrated, yet fresh and precise, aroma of ripe and mushy yellow apples intermixed with earthy/mineral flavors. Pure, fresh and crisp on the palate, with a remarkable salinity, this is a gorgeously juicy and stimulating Auxerrois coming from 20- to 25-year-old vines on granite soils (rich in micas). The 2016 is perfectly ripe, has a remarkable mineral and phenolic grip and is highly attractive. One of the most pleasant Auxerrois I have tasted in Alsace. The wine was bottled with 13.2% alcohol and 7.5 grams of residual sugar (so it is not really dry, according to European standards) and comes along as a "all-purpose Pinot," ready to be paired with many kinds of dishes.
