The 2019 Mélanie Pfister Paar Deux Cepages is a classic white blend from Alsace. Paar means "pair" in German, and accordingly, this wine is made from the two varieties: Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois. The vineyard surface is six acres essentially split between the two varieties. Pinot Blanc gives floral notes and fine acidity; Auxerrois gives fat and spice. Most of the current crop of vines was planted in 1973 and '74, with a small section dating from the late '60s, and all grow in predominately clay soils.
