Pinot Gris Grand Cru Gloekelberg 2008

    Alsace Grand Cru, Cave de Ribeauvillé, 75cl



To the north of Ribeauvillé, in the township of Rodern, this terroir lying south and southeast lies on a granite substrate with sandy and acidic soils on the surface.

Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Gris

Tasting Notes: A powerful nose with dried and crystalised fruits aromas for this Pinot Gris Grand Cru Gloeckelberg. The wine has a soft and well-structured mouth, round at first with a good balance coming from its mature acidity that is a sign of its noble origin.


Service Suggestions: Its opulent side, a bit "sultan-like" makes this Pinot Gris Grand Cru Gloeckelberg an ideal companion for skillet-cooked foie gras. Discover it with dishes based on mushrooms, duck, roasted veal or game. Serve between 10 and 12°C. Carafe if possible one hour before serving to allow the aromas to open up. Wine for long aging, 10 years or more. The notes of citrus fruits are moving progressively towards exotic fruits.
