For the ultimate in Pinot Gris character (richer than the Grigio style), head for Alsace in northeast France. This is a luxurious, rich white from a cellar in the centre of the Grand Cru areas. Creamy, ripe apricot fruit with elegant, minerally bite.
"Rich and indulgent. Wonderful depth to this wine. It was worth the wait. Seriously recommended"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
Alsace is a picture postcard area of northeast France, peppered with pretty villages that wouldn’t look out of place in a book of German fairy tales. The Germanic influences don’t end there – the vineyards are planted with Riesling, the three Pinots and Gewurztraminer. Although it’s a mountain cooled part of France, Alsace is also the country’s sunniest region. This combination leads to wines of real fruit purity and intensity. This white was crafted by a cellar regarded as the third finest co-op in all France and the best in Alsace. Founded over 60 years ago, it has won many awards. Enjoy this Pinot Gris with its ample, spicy apricot fruit undercut by stony minerality. A top wine to savour solo or with creamy white meat and fish dishes.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
