Pinot Auxerrois, “Vieille Vigne”
This wine accounts for over 10% of the domaine’s production in most vintages and is the first parcel harvested each fall. The vines are all in excess of 35 years of age. The cépage is not actually a Pinot; its origins have been traced to the Mosel; it can also be referred to simply as ‘Auxerrois’. The skin has a slightly bitter note, thus pressing is very light to minimize this element. A dry wine, it often carries at most 8-9 grams of residual sugar.
