Pinot Blanc, VdF Galanthus Nivalis, 2017 | Hautes-Côtes, Burgundy
Region: Hautes-Côtes, Burgundy
Grape: Pinot Blanc
Tasting Note: Intense notes of lime blossom, pink grapefruit, crème pâtissière, salt. Very Burgundian yet utterly unique at the same time. Phenomenal with so much poise.
Background: 100% Pinot Gouges (the mutated Pinot Noir variant of Pinot Blanc, discovered by Henri Gouges in 1936 in Clos des Porrets).
Serving: Cold - but not too cold! (10–12°C).
Decant into decanter/jug/carafe for 30 minutes to 1 hour before drinking.
