PINOT NOIR RÉSERVE LUCIEN ALBRECHT

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Pinot Noir is the only grape variety in Alsace to produce red or rosé wine. The wines are gen-erally characterized by the aroma of black cherries. After some time they often develop aromas of other red and black wild berries such as blackberries and blueberries.

WINE & FOOD PAIRINGS

Enjoy it with mozzarella and basil salad, red meats (beef and lam) and barbecues, roast poultry, game, tuna and salmon, medium to stronger cheeses.

VINTAGE 2016

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.
