2022 Pierrick Harang Le Petit Balthazar Viognier-Sauvignon Blanc
Winemaker of Petit Balthasar and the big brother of the Balthasar is Pierrick Harang. However, there is no family castle or extensive vineyards, but five generations of wine merchants and oenologists who all share the same passion to produce the best wines.
Pierrick and family's roots lie in Algeria and after Algerian independence, his grandparents & parents gave up everything to flee to France. His father continued his knowledge & career in Champagne there, including as cellar master of the large champagne house GH. MUMM. His range of wines, with a naturally lower alcohol content, are known for their delicious, fruit-driven and elegant wines. Purely for qualitative reasons, he did not choose to reduce the alcohol, but to work directly on the vines. Pierrick is a freak when it comes to picking on time, looking for the right plots of fruit and most of all to stimulate your senses!
The Petit Balthazar is a pleasant and fruity white wine made from the Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc grape. The wine is light straw yellow in color with silver hues. In the nose notes of lime, grapefruit and exotic fruit. Fresh and extremely pleasant in taste. Special about this wine is the low alcohol content of only 11%. A delicious glass for the terrace or as an aperitif and delicious with goat cheese, pike-perch, spring rolls, scallops and perfect as an aperitif.
