Pinot Gris Réserve Lucien Albrecht

GENERAL INFORMATION

As its name indicates in French, Pinot Gris is a grey varietal with white fruit. This varietal offers structured wines, round in the mouth feel and long on the finish. It shows smokiness and develops opulence and characteristic aromas.

 

WINE & FOOD PAIRINGS

This Pinot Gris pairs well with richly flavored dishes: game, veal, pork and poultry, particularly when served with rich sauces, fillet of duck with balsamic vinegar, and also great with comté cheese or yellow fruit based desserts. This is also an ideal aperitif wine.

 

VINTAGE

Vintage with a relatively mild winter, hot and sunny summer and then a cool autumn to reach the maturity of the grapes intended for the production of still wines in mid-September.

 

TASTING NOTES

The nose is complex and reveals aromas of apricot, hazelnut, and toast. The palate is supple and gourmand with a great balance on yellow fruit notes.

Temperature of service: 8– 10° C°

Aging capacity: Enjoy it now or keep it up to 5 years.
