Chateau d'Auvernier Neuchatel 2005

External Review by Morrell & Company:

The Neuchatel Blanc, which is light in colour with an aroma of lime, is a light fruity wine with just a hint of a sparkle due to its maturing on lees. It is derived from the Chasselas Fendant Roux. This vine of oriental origin was brought back to our region by the Crusaders. This is a cheerful wine. Just the thing for aperitifs. It goes well with grilled or boiled fish as well as with seafood. Perfect with cheese, it rounds off the evening on a joyful note.

This estate which is located on the shores of the Lake of Neuchâtel, currently markets the produce of about 60 hectares of grapevines. Although the Auvernier Castle Cellars actually possess only 16 hectares of grapevines, they cultivate an additional 24 hectares and buy the harvest of 20 hectares more from vine growers with whom their ties, in some cases, go back several generations. The light to medium chalky soils, in places with barely 40 to 50 cm of topsoil overlaying the bedrock, can be very generous, providing the grapevine with two to three metres of undersoil. Geologically similar to the Burgundy soil, although situated a little further south, it benefits from the proximity of the lake, which regulates the temperatures, thereby offsetting the additional 100 metres or so in relation to its French counterpart.
