Story

The vintage
Good acidity, rich fruit, and extremely limited yields marked the 2010 Alsace vintage. For the winegrower, the climatic conditions have rarely been more difficult. There were winter freezes, late bud break under the rain, uneven flowering then finally a warm summer. Harvest began on September 27th. Grapes arriving in the cellar showed a high concentration of sugar and wonderfully fresh acidity.

Tasting notes
Pure dried apricots on the nose. A very long and citrus finish, which has some real complexity. An exceptional Selection de Grains Nobles. Serve with a foie gras, a fruit dessert like Tarte Tatin, or a honey-based dessert.

92/100
"The golden-yellow 2010 Pinot Gris Sélection de Grains Nobles has a stunningly clear and precise, concentrated and fresh bouquet of lemon zests. On the palate this is a a rich, concentrated, sweet, piquant and juicy SGN that reveals not only a vibrant acidity and lingering salinity but a firm and grippy tannin structure that makes it a great food partner and gives it an excellent aging potential too. DRINK: 2015 – 2030

"Pure dried apricots on the nose. Really fresh for its age this pinot gris SGN is luscious without being massive or overblown. A very long and citrus finish, wich has some real complexity. Drink or Hold." [+]
