Overview

Appellation: Alsace

More than any other variety in 2011, Olivier sought to harvest the Pinot Gris before any botrytis development and to avoid any over-ripeness, particularly in the Herrenweg vineyard, the major source for this wine. The Herrenweg is a gravely valley floor vineyard, well drained and precocious. It is capable of producing elegant aromatic wines, which is the definition of this varietal Pinot Gris.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very pale straw.

Aroma

At this early stage, the nose is a mix of nutty/toasty flavors with some buttery/leesy character from the fermentation.

Palate

The wine is already opening up and showing very well. It is a serious varietal wine, with good power and a lovely velvety finish. The sweetness is quite discreet, and it is also a wine very easy to match with food.

Food Matching

A lovely wine to pair with spicey foods including green curries, salt and pepper squid and scallops with ginger and shallots.

Cellaring

Best consumed from 2012 - 2018.
