ALSACE FRIENDLY WINES
Wine connoisseurs often describe Pinot Blanc like a gently swinging song, taking life as it comes! It is like a ripe fruit chilled by its subtle acidity. It’s as supple as an acrobat who always lands on his feet, regardless the dishes offered up to Pinot Blanc. In short, it is a wine perfectly charming and poised.
To fairly describe the Riesling, both the pure and complex structures must be mentioned: the large trees with its branches outstretched towards the sky in winter. The elegance of its acidy structure, its vigorous and exquisite aromas along with its strong ties to the mineral world make this wine an unending adventure of depth and finesse
One word sums the Pinot Gris up perfectly, generosity, like when ripe fruits are harvested during the autumn or fragrant undergrowth. The intensity also pairs wonderfully with autumn meals with its array of stew dishes. Pinot Gris have a noble, velvety texture sometimes with smooth and silky nuances.
Gewurztraminer is undoubtedly the most extroverted and most extravagant of Alsace wines. It personifies travels to markets in the South or the Orient; the abundance of colors, rhythms, fragrances and exceptionally sumptuous textiles. Gewurztraminer appeals to all your senses with its intensity, delicacy, vitality and complexity.
