    Francois Thomas has now been joined by his son and daughter, Gilles and Suzy, and they have been given the freedom to produce a few cuvees as they wish. This is one, a fine pinot blanc from 50yo vines on the famed hillside of Kaefferkopf where there is a sandy topsoil derived from the granitic mother rock. They have aged the wine on its fine lees in old foudres for a year, without adding sulphur at any point, and bottled it unfined and unfiltered (there is the tiniest touch of haze in the pale gold colour). There is a reserve on the nose initially, but acacia honey notes gradually emerge, and on the palate it has a fine depth of confit citrus fruit. An excellent natural wine. For drinking now to 2020.
