Perhaps you may not know, the white grape variety - Pinot Blanc - originated from Burgundy and the noble grape Auxerrois is actually one of the main clones of Pinot Blanc. In the past, some growers in Burgundy grew Pinot Blanc to make direct and terroir-driven white wines. The main characteristic of wines made from Pinot Blanc generally have a certain roundness of flavour, with relatively apparent sweetness due to the lower acidity, and are gentler with less body and fewer distinguishing marks than Chardonnay.
We are excited to find an interesting Pinot Blanc that you might never see in the market – bottles of mature, 1996 Pinot Blanc from Savigny Les Beaune, that are sourced directly from Pierre de Crillon. We tasted this fascinating white yesterday and everyone wowed at the quality given how vivid and lively it still is nowadays. We have only 48 bottles left in stock -

An impressive, lively Pinot Blanc that is incredibly young! Comes with soft aroma of lemon oil, white flowers and mandarin orange; there are also notes of citrus peel that preserve the penetrating acidity to preserve the wine for aging and comes with toffee finish. It is a very pleasant wine to enjoy now which gives a big surprise to drinkers.
