Dessous de Table – an assemblage based on Auxerrois and Sylvaner.
The parcelles run up to 400m on the slopes and this drives a delicate light balance into these base varieties, which can have tendency towards roundness. Co-fermented to encourage a “common energy.” Aged in used burgundy barrels.
Unfiltered but almost colourless in appearance. On the nose, white flowers and fruits and a mild hint of spices. There is roundness on tasting, but its well balanced with fresh acidity and a complex range of fruit from pear skins to agrumes. There is a hint of gingerbread spice on the delicious finish.
