Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris (Pinot Beurot)
Tasting notes: "A blend of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, historic white cépages of the Côte de Nuits, the 2020 Bourgogne Blanc Origines offers up aromas of orange oil, pear, white flowers and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and racy, with bright acids, fine concentration and a long, gently exotic finish, it's more than just a curio." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
