Gustave Lorentz Pinot Gris Bio Grand Cru Kanzlerberg 2011
This Grand Cru has an intense nose with aromas of citrus fruits, vanilla, marzipan and almond paste. Dense and intense with a richness brought by the wood tones. A wine full of character with a delicious woody and spicy aftertaste.
Grapes; Pinot Gris from the classified Grand Cru slopes of Kanzlerberg. Gustave Lorentz is the sole producer of Pinot Gris grand Cru Kanzlerberg.
The soil consists of clay and limestone, but also gray and black muschelkalk. This is an alternation of limestone, marl and evaporite layers, which is very rare in the Alsace region. In combination with the fairly steep slope, on the south and southwest, this Kanzlerberg creates a unique taste.
This delicious and concentrated wine goes well with refined dishes, foie gras, hard cheese, game in sauce and any recipe with mushrooms.
The storage potential of these wines is very attractive and can be stored for more than 30-50 years.
Origin: France Alsace, Kanzlerberg. The grapes grow on a heavy soil, which is unique in this region. The grapes are harvested by hand and pressed whole and undergo a very slow fermentation.
