Pinot Gris Tradition 2018

11,20 

The Pinot Gris is a generous wine, ample and of a great aromatic complexity with a nice tension.

A great wine that shines with its incredible balance due to its structuring freshness, power and roundness.

Excellent as an aperitif or to be enjoyed with white meats, creamy dishes, risottos, snails and mushrooms.

Description

SOIL, CULTURE 

Clay soil.

The vines are grown using traditional Alsace methods, respecting the “AOC Alsace” specifications.

The estate has taken the step towards organic farming by starting its conversion in 2019.

Always mindful of the environment, we work our soils in order to preserve biodiversity in our plots.

Yields are controlled in order to have the pure expression of each of our terroirs.

HARVEST & WINE-MAKING

Manual harvesting to protect our grapes, followed by pneumatic pressing allows us to press the grapes gently, for a fine extraction of high quality.

Fermentation temperatures are controlled by cooling.

After maturing for a few months in our stainless steel tanks, our wines are bottled after a fine tangential filtration to stabilize them.

Storage in bottles in our cellars at a constant temperature.

COMMENTARY

Nice golden yellow colour.

Nose very typical of ripe fruits, stone fruits (plum, apricot).

The palate is supple and greedy with notes of brioche, hazelnuts, acacia honey and compounded fruits (quince, mirabelle, orange blossom).

Nice bright and frank finish with a fine acidity that brings a touch of freshness.

WINE AND FOOD

Excellent as an aperitif or to be enjoyed with white meats, creamy dishes, risottos, snails and mushrooms.

Thanks to its aromatic complexity and creamy texture, it blends perfectly with exotic, spicy cuisine and sweet-salty pairings.
