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.

  • Bel Lago Winery Auxerrois 2007


    Similar to Alsatian Pinot Blanc. Pale straw with a touch of green in the glass. Lightly floral nose, thin body with considerable acidity. Crisp apple and citrus flavors dominate, with herbs and some minerality in the aftertaste. Slight toffee notes as it warms. Pleasant, but not very interesting. Read More

  • Trimbach Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2006


    Like virtually all Alsatian Pinot Blancs, this particular wine is a blend-60% Pinot Auxerrois and 40% Pinot Blanc. The auxerrois adds a bit of spice. While it isn't as racy as many other Alsatian wines, it is a dependable wine- refreshing and dry. The color is light golden with nice transparency. There's a nice amount of acidity, notes of minera... Read More

  • Albert Mann Pinot Auxerrois Alsace Aoc Vieilles Vignes 2007


    A tasty Alsace with restrained but distinctive sourness, acidity, and fruit. Tested at room temp. Twist and pour. Tight nose of slightly sharp pear fruit and petrol. In the mouth had sweet and sour chewy pear and mildly sweet white grapefruit flavor with hints of mineral, white or yellow floral, and a touch of poultry fat. Finish lingered wi... Read More

  • Domaine Ehrhart Pinot Auxerrois Alsace Aoc 2004


    Once the strong "honey" top-note dissipated, this wine was not as sweet as at first we feared. A lovely complement both to the salmon main course and the fruitcake after. Would buy again. Read More

  • Clos Triguedina Cahors Prince Probus 2000


    The Trindadina Probus is a wine that I would guess more people might like than ... (the local term they use is Auxerrois), while the Black Wine is an 80% malbec, 15% Merlot, 5% Tannat blend. Cardinal red with purple and a brilliant sheen to look at. An elegant punch in the nose of roast coffee, spice and sweet fruit, with both rich strength an... Read More

  • Some discussion of clones may shed light on the New World expression of Pinot Noir. I have long believed that clones explain a great deal of the diversity found in the many wines made from this globe-hopping noble grape. Terroir, vineyard maintenance and climate do not seem to fully explain the differences - at least, not to my satisfaction. ... Read More
