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.

  • Domaine Saint-Remy Cremant d'Alsace NV


    Elegant, fruity aromas of glazed pear, fresh apple and vanilla cream on the nose. This exhibits a truly fresh palate of lively stone fruit, pierced with zesty acidity and a pile of spice - and wrapped in a creamy layer of vanilla bean, rolled oats and brioche. Read More

Theres a bit of cream on the palate which shifts towards lemon and grapefruit notes, more dark toast and smoky brioche, leading straight into a lighter note of peach and apple, finishing with vanilla, cream and some melon. Good complexity. Read More
