  • Gold, Gilbert & Gaillard International Competition, 2021

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 2019. 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 rounded, lightly spiced stone fruit, it's great with fish pie or spicy Asian dishes.
