50% Pinot Auxerrois 50% Sylvaner. Whole bunches are directly pressed together slowly over 6 hours, the juice settles overnight before being racking into old barrels. It begins fine, flinty, and fresh with pomelo and citrus juice. A long and sizzling palate, lanolin, orange blossom, and a twist of spice. There’s depth here, white florals and pears, and the palate builds. Incredible length.
To say the release of Catherine's wines are hotly anticipated around the world each year is an understatement. A quiet woman who works mostly on her own, except at harvest. From a family of Alsatian restauranteurs, that she has gained such a following for her smallish amount of bottles each year is some achievement in such a short space of time.
Her wines are based throughly in the vineyard, austere yet of exacting detail, a volume in the glass that teases you in with delicious aromatics and supreme drinkability. Working with Riesling, Sylvaner, Auxerrois and Gewurz over a mix of terroir from the poor and sandy to more dense clay, plus a rare pocket of blue schist that her Pinot Noir is grown on.
