Asparagus with Sauce Hollandaise

A fabulous dish found on every menu during the asparagus season – but not an easy one when it comes to recommending wines to accompany it: the high fat content and the buttery flavour of the sauce call for a wine that has body, yet isn't too heavy – one that's ideally from the Burgundy family.  Ripe Weißburgunder and Grauburgunder (Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris), and Chardonnay – also with a nuance of wood – guarantee pure asparagus pleasure. And Grüner Veltliner in the Smaragd or Reserve quality levels go so naturally!
