Vinification: The juice is extracted with infinite care in an air-bag press. The slow, gentle pressing avoids crushing the stalks and pips. The must starts fermenting of its own accord thanks to the natural yeast present in the juice, and the fermentation generally lasts from 4 to 10 weeks. It is carried out in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel vats. Once the fermentation is finished, the wine has to be matured. This stage is essential in order to fix its structure and aromas. As the wine matures, the tiny particles in suspension gradually sink to the bottom of the vat and form a deposit, which contributes richness.
Tasting Notes: At first, lemon is expressed on the nose. After aeration, the aromas of flowers, peach and apricot pits, skins of grapefruit dominate. The wine is fresh, balanced and will provide immediate pleasure. The Paul Blanck Pinot Blanc is the ideal wine for warm asparagus or shellfish in cream or any tasty starters.
