Pinot Blanc is, like Riesling, a demanding grape variety: it requires warm, deep and properly exposed soils. Correct thinning of the vine at the right maturity level is also essential to reveal the richness of its aromas. On the banks of the Moselle valley, with its shell limestone soil, Pinot Blanc can develop its full character.
Our Pinot Blanc is an elegant dry wine, with fresh acidity and delicate fruitiness. Its subtle aromas are often remind of green walnuts, apples, pears, quince, apricots, citrus fruits or fresh pineapple. Its freshness and not too pronounced structure make it a versatile gastronomic wine, suitable for seafood, fish, veal, pork, poultry or quite simply as an aperitif wine. Pinot Blanc will also be perfect with a “bouchée à la reine”.
"I like the tranquility when working outside in the vineyard but also the challenge of producing grapes worthy of the AOP label, every year. Being a Moselle winegrower means combining passion and high standards."
Guy Gales, Remerschen
The Pinot Blanc we produce is very fruity. It has aromas of pear, apple, exotic fruits and even butter, if it has been aged in oak barrels. In my opinion, the terroir has a great importance in the aromatic profile of the Pinots Blancs. These different taste notes will therefore be more or less pronounced, depending on the terroirs where the vine is grown.
"I've been working the vines since I was 13 or 14 years old. When my grandmother stopped, I took over her vineyards, afterwards those of my father. It was very important for me to continue the tradition. What I love above all is to be alone in the vineyard, without anyone to disturb me, especially after the harvest, when we have to tie up the vines and do the arches."
I am particularly proud that my grapes are part of this Pinot Blanc AOP. Every year, it is indeed a challenge to maintain the highest level of quality in our grapes through our work. I enjoy Pinot Blanc as an aperitif or with a wide variety of dishes like fish, white meat or seafood. Each sip is a pure moment of happiness.
