Regional Features & Food Pairings

Auxerrois is mainly grown in Alsace, and is sometimes blended with Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay in sparkling wines. It is also occasionally found in Luxembourg, Germany and Austria. Auxerrois is an early ripening variety and prefers cooler climates. It is a vigorous grower that is prone to downy mildew and is susceptible to both botrytis and oidium. In sparkling winemaking, the grapes are pressed as whole bunch and then usually vinified in large oak barrels or stainless steel tanks. In Alsace, Auxerrois can be made into a light, off-dry wine that is best enjoyed young. In Luxembourg, wines made from the grape tend to be more structured and can be aged for several years. Auxerrois pairs well with light dishes such as pasta or white fish. It is also a great accompaniment to spicy Asian cuisine. Fun Fact: DNA parentage analysis has shown that Auxerrois is one of the numerous natural progenies of Pinot and Gouais blanc.
