Domaine Weinbach 2017 Pinot Blanc, Alsace, France

Established in 1612, 100% Estate Grown

Winemaker: Laurence Faller,  Ghislain Berthiot

Farming: Biodynamic (certified Demeter)

Variety: 70% Pinot Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc

Terroir: Older vines in our monopole Clos des Capucins vineyard composed of sandy, silty soil on granite pebbles; a plot in the  Cuvée Laurence vineyard, at the foot of the Altenbourg. The grapes grown in this terroir ripen much earlier, producing wines with complex aromatics and a powerful concentration. 

Vinification: Hand-picked at optimum maturity to reinforce the aromatic expression and body of wines. Gently pressed in whole-clusters in pneumatic presses, then fermentation with indigenous yeasts in large, old oak vats. 

Aging: 8-10 months in large old oak foudres

Tasting Note: This vibrant Pinot Blanc launches with delicate aromas of orchard fruits and white blossoms. Well-structured, crisp, and perfectly balanced as a result of an interesting contrast between the freshness of the acidity and the ripeness of the fruit. Ending on a firm and persistent finish.

Pairing: A welcome addition to any gathering, best served chilled as an aperitif or with a refreshing lunch. Great with quiche, onion pie, fish terrine, cheese soufflé, light appetizers, and grilled chicken. 

Scores: 91 points, James Suckling. 91 points, Vinous
