Color

In bright white gold with light greenish and silvery reflections, the wine appears clear and shiny in the glass.

Nose

When fruit and the right selection of herbs meet, the result is often enriching and exciting combinations. This is also the case when a wine oscillates between these worlds. Crisp strawberry with plucked basil; mango and star fruit with tarragon and fennel greens; nashi pear with a delicate glaze of ginger, sorrel and white pepper. With this tension in itself, the Burgundy from Alsace is on the one hand compatible with the masses and on the other hand something very special.

Palate

The 2018 OX Auxerrois from Domaine Trapet is not immediately headlong, but determined and challenging in character. The otherwise often shy and reserved grape variety Auxerrois appears here with a clenched fist and magnificent vocal power. Filling space and with a creamy texture, space is created for the wine to give free rein to its playfulness of delicate fruit and stimulating herbal spice.

Confidently, he engages in an encounter with exotic foods.
