Auxerrois is similar to pinot blanc, with round apple and pear notes and a low-acid, medium-bodied profile. It pairs well with mild pork dishes and with light fish dishes, such as trout or sole. High-quality auxerrois can offer more earthy mineral nuances and dried flower aromatics, but most is destined for quick consumption as a refreshing, unoaked white wine.
