Hot weather requires cold wines. Most wines lose complexity when you chill them, so we tend to reach for simpler bottles in the summer. And at our house, it’s not summer without a glass of Auxerrois.
From the granite covered hillsides of Alsace, winemaker Christophe Mersiol crafts a gorgeous blend of fruit, flowers, and freshness. The grape is a variation of Pinot Blanc, and Mersiol’s displays a perfect balance between round, mouthfilling fruit, and stony, crystalline freshness.
With over a month left in summer, this is a great wine to have around. A cool glass on its own after work, an aperitif to welcome your dinner party guests, or a match for a summery pasta.
