France > Alsace

Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois farmed from sandy, alluvial soils. Vine age: 40 years. R.S. 4.85 g/L Wine ages on lees until April. In Bottle for 18 months with yeast before disgorging. Clement says this wine is good for drinking from about breakfast until after dinner!

For centuries this swath of land roughly 15 miles wide has been bandied about by conquering armies, spoils of war like any other. This violent fluctuation, as Jancis Robinson puts it, creates an ambivalence amongst the people towards their winemaking. Neither wholly German nor wholly French, but a blissful combination of both, the wines of Alsace when optimally realized are unique gems in the pantheon of wines. Varietals tend towards the Germanic types, while the winemaking sense is much more French in nature, veering more to a dry style. Unlike most of France, however, Alsace producers usually place the varietal name clearly on the front of their bottles.
