Alsace - France

Off-Dry White

 Pinot Gris 

"Sourced from different villages with limestone soils (and acidity!) and bottled with approximately 10 grams of residual sugar, the 2013 Pinot Gris Calcaire has a still closed bouquet but already indicates its chalky origins by lemon aromas. The wine is full-bodied, firm and mineral at the moment, but was round and juicy when I tasted it from an open bottle at a wine fair in March. Well structured, racy, and provided with a stimulating salinity and a nice grip, this vin de calcaire should age well over the next 6-8 years."
