Terroirs: Sandy clay loam, perfectly suited to the Auxerrois region.
Cultivation practices: Yield control, limited to 68 Hectolitres/ Ha, soil tillage and integrated pest management, compliance with an internal charter and the regulations in force for the AOC Alsace Lieu Dit, inspection of the plots by a Technical Commission during the summer to validate compliance with the charter.
Vinification: Selection of grapes at harvest time, manual harvest, rigorous sorting, slow pressing respecting the harvest, alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled vats, filtration on tangential filter.
Food pairing: This wine will go perfectly with grilled fish, white meat, and other refined dishes where a white wine is a must.
This Auxerrois can be enjoyed now to take advantage of its fruitiness and freshness. But this Grand Vin with an interesting ageing potential suggests a nice evolution over the next 5 years.
