History: 
Although the Pinot Blanc is a very ancient grape variety (already known in the 16th century), it was only truly recognized a few years ago. It does not come from Burgundy, but the north of Italy. It was first introduced by the Anglo-Saxons, and then gradually discovered by the French who appreciated its freshness, suppleness and ability to go with food.
Location: 
Our Pinot Blanc is located essentially in the Grands Crus Saering & Spiegel as well as the localities of Bux and Bollenberg.
Wine-Making: 
Our Pinot Blanc Les Princes Abbés was harvested from 9th September to 15th September 2009.
A blend of 30% Pinot Blanc and 70% Auxerrois.
Pressed pneumatically. Static settling of the must. Fermented in temperature controlled tuns from 1 to 4 months. Raised on the lees for 4 months. Bottled within the years.
Tasting: 
The robe is bright yellow with green reflections. The disc is bright and luminous.
The nose is fine and delicate, on floral and fruity notes. Green lime and grape fruit notes can be found after airing.
In the mouth, the onset is generous, slightly full-bodied but very supple nevertheless. We can find all the characteristics of a solar vintage. In the middle mouth, we evolve on more mineral, slightly tonic notes.
The finish is of medium length and very fine, making this wine very pleasing to drink.
