Domaine Valentin Zusslin Auxerrois Au'rigine 2020

Alsace, FranceEstablished in 1691 by M. Jodocus Cisle (former name of Zusslin), Domaine Valentin Zusslin is now run by two generations of the Zusslin family. The winery is based in Orschwihr, south of Colmar, and the vines are planted on the slopes of the Bollenberg, Clos Liebenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg. Since 1997, the estate has been run biodynamically. This Auxerrois comes off limestone soils, and was native fermented and rested in stainless on lees for more than 1 year. Very subtle throughout, with delicate pear blossom, subtle verbena, and melon notes on the slight, and watery palate. There's a fine buzzy underlay, creating interest, and carrying this lighter, dry white through the buzzy finish. Not your typical aromatic off white of BC (thankfully).Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
