The Pinot Blanc Cuvée Balthazar is named for Balthazar Albrecht who settled in Orschwihr in 1698.
This wine, made 100% from Pinot Blanc, is unoaked and fresh with a soft dry fruit. It is the wine to drink at home as an aperitif or
with all casual family meals. Picked when very mature, harmonious with a lively spring finesse.
A pleasant everyday white from Alsace. Slightly sweeter (apple and pear tones) than a typical Alsace Pinot Blanc, but very enjoyable. Imagine drinking this while sitting outside on a warm day, maybe paired with a simple salad with lemon vinigrette.
Pleasantly suprised with this wine. I'm not much of a Pinot drinker, and this was sweeter than the other pinot varients that I've tasted. Looking forward to other vintages from Lucien Albrecht.
