Super fragrant, with lush scents of citrus, apple and a hint of vanilla, this excellent Auxerrois pushes confidently through the palate and into a well-defined, lengthy, slightly saline finish. Unique and delicious. - Editor’s Choice

Wine maker notes
When two clones of Auxerrois (oak-sair-wah) were brought into Oregon from Alsace in 1977, we knew next to nothing about the variety. Still, after tasting some test wines made at Oregon State University, our interest was piqued. DNA testing has shown that Auxerrois, like Chardonnay, Aligote, Gamay and 10 other varieties, is a cross between Pinot noir and an ignoble variety called Gouais blanc. Auxerrois is also the name of the area surrounding the town of Auxerre near Chablis, but the variety has disappeared from that area and all other parts of Burgundy. There are probably less than 5700 acres of it planted in the world. Its early ripening has allowed it to flourish in Luxembourg (even achieving Premier Cru status), but in Alsace, the variety is now mostly used with Pinot blanc in the production of Cremants d’Alsace. In the U.S., we know of only two other producers.
