It is the most approachable wine of Alsace and also the most consistent year in year out. Not far in style from an unoaked Chardonnay such as a Macon or Chablis.
The aroma is fruity, elegantly scented and full or spring. On the palate this is a dry wine with a joyful and harmonious attack. It is cool, refreshing, rounded and smooth; it quenches the thirst with a full-flavoured and savoury finish. Its sapidity is impressive. This is a fine Pinot Blanc which will give much pleasure in its youth but will be truly remarkable in 3 to 5 years with a Burgundy feel without barrel ageing.
Food pairing: Best served with sea and fresh-water fish, preferably grilled, in sauce, smoked, marinated or at the start of a meal, with asparagus, seafood platters, goat or sheep cheese.
