Auxerrois Barrique 2020
Smooth Pear & Spice
Smooth & full of pleasure, an oak-aged Auxerrois expertly crafted by Henri Ruppert, the wine wizard of Schengen. Apricot, spiced pear, & warm peach cobbler vibes.
Overlooking the borders of Germany, France, and Luxembourg, Henri Ruppert makes wines that can rival the greats. From a passion for Riesling to a talent for Pinot Noir, Schengen is not just the entrance to Europe but to modern winemaking in Luxembourg.
