Voix de la Vigne Pinot Gris 2016

Tasting Notes: The Voix de la Vigne Pinot Gris immediately captures your attention from the first sip. Hints of lemon and lime citrus with surprising depth on the nose are followed by white peach and ripe pear flavors on the palate. The soft finish is lined with just enough honeysuckle to tempt you into some more.

Wolfberger Alsace Grand Cru Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann 2012

Honey, ripe fruits and sweet spices.
Long and ripe fruit flavors, with apricot and badian hints.

The Rangen Grand Cru is located in Thann, deep in the south of Alsace. Its particular soil is made of volcano-clastic rocks that drink up the heat of the day and send it back out again at night. The composition of the soil allows the roots of the vines to drink deeply from the mineral-rich sub-soil. Its southern exposure has the advantage of refreshing, drying winds in case of dampness. The high slopes are quite steep, reaching 68% in some places, requiring that the harvest be done by abseiling or roping down. Perfect for aging, these wines will reveal even more qualities after several years in the cellar.

Pair with duck honey and balsamic vinegar, foie gras, cheese like vacherin, comte 18 months, pork aigre douce (sweet and sour), dessert with apricot.

 


Review:

Earth and undergrowth flavors are woven through the rich pear tones which begin to shine with great, slightly sweet ripeness when exposed to a little air. The phenolic texture provides a counterpoint, supported by lemony freshness. Lovely balance. - 90 Points Wine Enthusiast

"Wolfberger farms close to 10 acres in Rangen de Thann, where the warm, volcanic soils helped ripen, this pinot gris to its deep golden color and tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and mango. Its botrytis complexity provides richness, while a firm line of minerality keeps the wine cool and focused, with the stamina to age."
