Auxerrois

Auxerrois, created from a cross between Pinot and Gounais blanc, is a Burgundy wine. It's possible that it was developed in Burgundy during the Middle Ages where both grapes were being cultivated at the time. The name apparently originates from the town of Auxerre, which is in Chablis (Burgundy).

Auxerrois prefers medium to good locations with deep, well-ventilated soils and good water management.

The wine is similar to a Burgundy with a little more body and bouquet but with less acidity. The aroma is reminiscent of quinces, melons and mirabelle.
