Superb bouquet of candied fruit, citrus zest and sweet spices, with paprika, cinnamon and coffee beans. On the palate, the unctuousness is perfectly melted, the wine is both powerful and tense, developing a long, straight and spicy finish. The pairing with a great foie gras or an Asian "fusion" cuisine is simply exceptional! A great vintage for gastronomy. Guide Vert RVF : 16.50/20

Viticulture

The letter "W" refers to the Wiptal, included in the Sommerberg, a sunny, amphitheatrical terroir. The wine is often made from very ripe grapes. But on this relatively cool and late terroir, the pinot gris retains a very good acidity. Although the vines are quite young (about 15 years old), they produce a particularly well-balanced grape here, capable of giving the wine tension, freshness and great aromatic finesse.

Oenology

Alcoholic fermentation is generally carried out with indigenous yeasts and malolactic fermentation is not sought. The pressings on whole grapes are slow and the settling that follows is not very thorough. The wine is fermented in large tuns. Total sulphur levels are low for the region (80 mg/l) and only 20 mg of free sulphur at bottling.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Pan-fried or terrine foie gras, scampi or lobster salad with citrus vinaigrette, Asian cuisine with ginger, duck with orange.
