Product reviews
This Organic and Biodynamic certified wine is made of a blend of Pinot Blanc Vrai, and Pinot Auxerrois coming from various parcels all standing on the Epfig village.
The vines are grown using Biodynamic principles since 1998, meaning no chemical fertilizer,weed killer nor pesticide is added whatsoever, all the work is done by hand and ploughing isthe only mechanical operation on the soil.
Average age of the vines is 15 years.After pressing, the wine is slowly fermented and aged in Burgundy oak barrels. Mostly 5 year old barrels are used in average (only 5% are new) which won't oak the wine but allow a slow and gentle oxidation. Combined with the aging on the lees, without stirring,this helps to bring complexity and fullness to the wine. The result is an uncommonly full-bodied and structured Pinot Blanc, yet dry. It exhales fresh and fruity aromas of yellow peaches and nectarine. A hint of hazelnut comes out with air. The mouth is thick and tense by a nice minerality.It is an easy-pairing wine with food, though it will be at its best with terrines, white meat, fish or cheese.
