Rolly Gassman 2001 Auxerrois Moechreben de Rorschwihr

Auxerrois may be a grape with the same parents as Chardonnay: Gouais blanc and Pinot noir.

Golden color, rich.

Musky melon smell, like unoaked chardonnay.

Fruity off-dry apple and melon flavor, some petillance at the beginning, some off-dry thin-ness at the end.

Interesting medium-bodied bottle for $22.87.
