Pinot Auxerrois (aka. Auxerrois Blanc)

Auxerrois' tendency towards low acidity makes it suitable to cooler climates, such as England, Ontario's Niagara Peninsula, and in British Columbia where it is grown with some success. A descendant of a Pinot Noir and a Gouais Blanc cross, it is relegated to the higher Haut-Rhin vineyards in Alsace, where it is most often blended into that region’s bulk wine, ‘Edelzwicker’. It is also grown in the northeast Moselle region of Germany. Wine made from Auxerrois tends to be dry, with a musky aroma and some floral and citrus character.

Auxerrois is an international name of intrigue. You are obscure, even in your Alsatian home, where you seek a secret refuge under the roof of ‘Edelzwicker’. With the trouble you’ve had in establishing your own identity in the Old World, one wonders why celebrities like Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Malbec would ever wish to borrow your name as an alias. Perhaps the cool environs of North America will give you a fresh start in a Read more »

  • Kogl Auxerrois Mea Culpa 2010


    Slightly effervescent in the glass. Similar in acidity and crispness to the Sauvignon Blancs I've had. The palate was a bit off-putting at first, but mellowed out after some time in the glass. I attribute this to being in a stelvin-capped bottle. It needed to open up a bit. Definitely young and in need of settling down. Once mellowed, palate had... Read More

  • Kogl Auxerrois Mea Culpa 2010


    On the nose, crisp lychee, pear, almond and mineral. It's big in minerality on the palate as well. Crisp and fresh with flavors of grapefruit, light apricot, zesty apple, peach and a light nutty quality. Coats the mout toward the finish with a pleasant melon flavor. Nice!91 pts7/7/12 Read More

  • Bel Lago Winery Auxerrois 2009


    Crisp and dry. the subtle complexities Auxerrois is known for, a nice balance between fruit, floral, minerality, and sweet grass. Though this wine showed a much more rich bouquet than most Auxerrois I have had. A perfect choice to accompany sushi. Read More

  • Ehrhart Pinot Auxerrois Val St.-Gregoire 2007


    Rich nose of honeyed stone fruits and lychee. Dryer on the palate than it smells, somewhat thick, with similar honey and stone fruit notes. Reminds me of a dessert wine without the sugar. Read More

  • Domaine Clos des Rochers Auxerrois Blanc 2009


    An amazing bottle, a must try! It lingers in your mouth long after every sip leaving behind luscious stone fruits, soft floral notes, minerality paired with saltiness (almost like seashells), and a pretty textured oily palette. wonderful! Read More

    Wine review by alanb1108

  • Until recently the only "wine" that I've enjoyed was Arbor Mist blackberry Merlot.  Well a few weeks ago a fellow co-worker suggested to try a Moscato.  She personally tried the Barefoot brand, so I followed her suggestion and LOVED it.  Since then I've tried Easley's Raggae Red, which I also loved, and Barefoot Riesling, Barefoot White Zinfande...
