In English, pinot blanc and chardonnay. What the Keller family have created here is mighty. With Felix's (KP and Julia's eldest son) passion for these varieties and the old vines available the work that has been done over recent years has resulted in a very unique style. It's like a mythical blend of Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru and Corton Charlemagne with just a little dash of slight skin-contact riesling grown on limestone to add more linearity, texture and an electric nervosity. As KP says, "It's all about elegance and precision, so we used 1 large old oak barrel, a few small older pieces and a little went into tank." This is a fully dry white at just under 13% alc. with a mineral first impression, fruit following but with a real depth on the palate, a textural twist almost bordering on chewy, and a slight spiced apple and "warm dough" nuance, powerful yet restrained. Spicy pear contrasts with freshness and the oak is well buried. It has impressive length, concentration and ageability.
