WEISSER BURGUNDER (Pinot Blanc)
Weisser Burgunder, also known as Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), accounts for about three percent of the estate’s total production. The grapes are grown exclusively in the single vineyard of Trittenheimer Altärchen, which is located primarily on the same side of the Mosel (left bank) as the village. It has a southeastern to western exposure. The weathered, shale-based soils and gravel bring forth an elegant mineral component that is well integrated with a delicacy of fine, fruit aromas. Rather than showing a full-bodied, rich creaminess, the Weissburgunder wines of Eva Clüsserath appeal for their deep, fresh mineral flavor. This is accompanied by fragrant fruit aromas reminiscent of pear, citrus, grapefruit or orange peel. Yet, ripe and exotic fruit aromas, such as pineapple or honeydew melon, join with the stimulating stony notes and the fresh fruits to make for a well-balanced, harmonious Weissburgunder.
