Pinot Gris Réserve 2015 Alsace - Domaine Meyer-Fonné


Forget every cheap "Pinot Grigio" you've ever tasted, this is what it really is! You might choke when you hear the name of this "infamous" grape, but do you know that it originally came from Alsace and that a real winemaker's Pinot Gris has nothing to do with what you can get in your local pub! Half made from "Grand Cru" classified vines, this stunning Pinot Gris boasts complex aromas of dried fruit, lime and hawthorn with a remarkable touch of honey on the finish. An outstanding quality for the price, highly recommended: "Il a tout d'un grand!"

What experts say  
  
 
86/100 "The 2014 Pinot Gris Réserve is a blend of different soil types: 50% marl and red sandstone, 30% granite and 20% limestone. It fermented bone dry (down to 2.5 grams per liter of residual sugar). Fascinatingly pure and precise on the nose, with fresh and some nice yellow pimientos and ripe lemon aromas. Medium-bodied, very juicy and upfront on the palate, though with a good grip in the finish. The wine is still young and on its self-discovery trip.” (2014 vintage)
