Catherine Riss - Dessous de Table Blanc 2019
Grapes: Pinot Auxerrois / Sylvaner
An assemblage of Pinot Auxerrois and Sylvaner in equal portions, Whole bunches are directly pressed together slowly over 6 hours, the juice settled overnight before being racked into old barrels.
It begins fine. Flinty and fresh with pomelo and citrus juice. Long sizzling palate and vivacious. Lanolin, orange blossom and a spice twist. There’s depth here, white florals and pears, and the palate builds. Incredible length.
