This uncommon Alsatian variety shares the same parentage as Chardonnay, which is a crossing of Pinot Noir and Gouais Blanc. Much like its Burgundian sibling, this grape seems to perform well in oak. This example is steely and citrus driven, with milky white-flower tones. Having spent one year in neutral French oak, the palate is broad and rich, yet impeccably balanced by crisp acidity.

Reviews wines from Italy and New York.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. On top of enjoying wines from the region where his wine career began, he can often be caught drinking Old World selections from his central and southern Italian beats.
