AuxerroisAdd to wish list
Origin: Auxerrois is a variety of the Burgundy group. The name is possibly derived from the county of Auxerrois between Burgundy and Chablis.
Interbreeding: According to genetic analyses, it is a natural interbreeding between the Heunisch and Pinot.
Characteristics: Auxerrois has a tendency to coulure during the blossom. The ripeness is early (before Pinot Blanc), the yield is medium and irregular because of the sensitivity to flowering. The yield level is below that of Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay.
Grape: The grapes are medium sized with a loose structure. The berries are light yellow, thin-skinned and turn slightly brownish when they have reached full ripeness. The taste is fruity-sweet.
Wine: The wine is full-bodied and Burgundy-like, but not as fruity and juicy as Pinot Blanc. It also contains less acidity than Pinot blanc. It is particularly suitable for dryness and as a blending partner of Pinot Blanc or Chardonnay.
Cultivation: It corresponds to the requirements of Pinot Blanc, i.e. it can be described as medium to high. It needs deep, well-aerated soils with good watering. Attention, the variety is sensitive to late frost!
