Back vintage! (yes I figured out that the photo is still showing the 2009 vintage in error, will be fixed). Luscious Grand Cru Pinot Gris, semi-sweet and chock full of exotic fruits and fabulous spicy notes. Complex and intense aromas of fruit jelly, pineapple, spices like cumin, a hint of smoked almond. Intense and flavorsome, fruity apricot jam, mandarin liqueur, honey, long peppery-spicy finish. and a typically salty minerality.

Made up of calcareous sandstone, the dry and well drained soil is adapted to the production of strong wines with floral notes, underscored by finesse and freshness. Situated in the southern part of the winegrowing area of Alsace, Grand Cru Vorbourg boasts one of the driest climates within this region.

"The lift of heady aroma precedes the pear-fruited and herbal tisane-scented nose. The palate is gentle and has that same herbal softness. The fruit is rich with residual sweetness and characterized as ripe pear. This is balanced by zesty, pleasantly bitter citrus. The effect is of harmonious, gentle and generous balance. This mature Pinot Gris is now perfectly à point. Its flavors linger long and pleasantly."
