Scherer Pinot Blanc Reserve, Alsace, France
We sourced this wine for a wedding and have a few bottles left over - perfect for our Black Friday sale. This excellent 7-hectare estate is situated in the village of Husseren and is run by Andre's son Christophe, who trained in Burgundy and Australia and who took over from his father in 1990. Winemaking has run in the family for over 200 years and Christophe is the 9th generation winemaker to take over the reins of the family estate. The vines are situated on the famed plateau of Eguisheim and include 2 hectares of grands crus vineyards at Eichberg and Pfersigberg. This rich Pinot Blanc is from 30 year-old vines and is aged in large (900lt) oak tonneau before bottling.
