The Wine

Details

Plantscher, also known as Bordeaux Blanc or Gros Bourgogne, is a very rare grape despite having an impressive and much admired offspring in Hungarian Furmint. This has led to the suggestion that it may originate from Hungary rather than France as the synonyms may suggest.

Ben says (May 2018): Often, ultra-rare grapes can be a dissapointment in terms of aroma and flavour despite being of interest in other ways. On the nose this is a very fresh, citric wine, with lemon and lime dominating. In the mouth these fruits continue to express themselves and the well-balanced acidity encourages this.

Serving Suggestions:

Cheese!

In Depth:

The Plantscher is a descendent of Furmint (the wine most famous in Hungarian Tokaj, and well known to our customers thanks to Heidi Schröck in Rust). This is an aromatic wine mostly enjoyed with cheese. It was intriguing and pleasant to drink in our tasting on Feb 4, 2012, although like most of the ancient varieties it will open up and expand with a bit of bottle age. Plantscher is only grown in Switzerland and only grown there in the region of Valais. Not only that, it is only found in one vineyard cultivated by the saviour of so many ultra-rare varieties - Josef-Marie Chanton. His son Mario has now succeeded his father at Chanton and continues his legacy with just 0.75 hectares of this ultra-rare grape.
