The yellow diamond of Alsace This wine is a hymn to Pinot gris! Like Ancestrum Gewurztraminer, its handpicked harvest is postponed for a couple of weeks, in view of obtaining perfect ripeness. This exceptional wine, elaborated for genuine connoisseurs, was awarded a gold medal at the Pinot Gris of the World International Wine Competition in 2009 and 2011.
This is a gastronomic wine boasting great finesse, elegance and harmony. It can be fully appreciated with white meat, saucy fish dishes and spicy meals...It is marvelous with risotto and cepes, goose foie gras or grilled shrimp. It goes well with excellent goat's cheese, hard pressed cheese such as Comté or Beaufort and will surprise you at dessert-time with an ice-cream cake or an exotic fruit salad.
