  • Gold, Concours General Agricole de Paris, 2019

Pinot Gris is a top grape of Alsace. The same as Pinot Grigio, here it produces lush, spiced apricot and pear fruit, beautifully illustrated by this Gold medal 2018. Using grapes from next door to a Grand Cru vineyard, this is rich, ripe and intense.

In Italy Pinot Grigio is crisp and citrusy, but when the same grape is called Pinot Gris, it becomes a very different wine. Some of its finest examples are from Alsace, eastern France. Steep slopes, abundant sunshine (the sunniest spot in all France) and the Vosges mountains all lend the region’s wines a pristine freshness, amazing intensity and purity of fruit. This is a superb white from the Gisselbrecht family’s 350 year old cellar, today run by brothers Philippe and Claude. The grapes are from an estate vineyard in Dambach, next door to the Frankstein Grand Cru. With granite soils and steep slopes, it produces fruit of power and intensity. Off dry, with creamy, lightly spiced stone fruit, it's a great match with creamy or Asian dishes.

"Delicious, off-dry Pinot Gris from France's top spot, Alsace, and from almost Grand Cru vineyards" Sarah Everden
