Product Description

The robe is a light golden yellow with light golden reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid, transparent. The wine has a fine youthful quality. The nose is marked, pleasant, expressive and gives out a dominant of juvenile, primary, fruity, scent, citrus fruit and very refreshing lemon peel. Airing enhances the fruity character, of lemon still, as well as delicate hint of fine vegetal. The frisky and refreshing nose is remarkable. The onset in the mouth is moderatly ample with a well balanced alcoholic base. One evolves on a fresh and edgy medium marked by a sparkling note. The range of flavours is focused on the dominant fruits and pastries. The finish offers a moderate lenght, 4 caudalies, and a sharp vivacity. The wine shows a slender and lengthy character without losing the freshness of the grape variety. Matching it with food: Suggested as an accompaniment to a bed of raw vegetables or fresh goat's cheeses. Already gifted with a pleasant taste, I would recommend to serve it at temperature of 11°C

Varietal: Pinot Blanc

Region: Alsace

Region Description:

(ahl zas) Just across the Rhine River from Germany, this region in northeastern France produces wines that are unique in many ways. They are made with grapes native to Germany; their bottles are graceful and long-necked; they are relatively inexpensive; and their labels carry the names of the grape as well as the place-name. Alsace Riesling is far drier than its German counterpart, although it has a fruity aroma. IT can be enjoyed young, but a good Riesling will age and improve for ten or more years. Alsace Pinot Blanc is a light-bodied wine that can be extremely dry or medium-dry. Tokay Pinot Gris is made from the Pinot Gris grape, known more famously in Italy as Pinot Grigio. In Alsace these wines are rich, spicy, and full-bodied and a good match with spicy meat dishes as well as sweet and sour flavors. In Alsace, the Gewurztraminer grape makes wines that are spicy, intense, low in acidity and high in alcohol.
