Pinot Gris Altenberg de Bergheim grand cru 2013 - Gustave Lorentz
• Service: 10 to 12°C
• Cellaring : 15 to 20 years
• Sweetness: Mild
• A very beautiful Pinot Gris of gastronomy, endowed with great richness and concentration. Its nose is refined, delicate and very expressive where aromas of very ripe yellow fruits (mirabelle plum, roasted peach) dominate, accompanied by a hint of honey. On the palate the wine shows a perfect balance between residual sugars and acidity. It is impressive at the same time by its substance, its texture and its sweetness on the palate.
• Terroir : On the finage of the medieval town of Bergheim, runs on the south face of the Grasberg hillock, a rather steep slope, at an altitude of 220 to 320 metres. The south-facing exposure, the distance from the Vosges front, and the steep slope favour a warm and temperate microclimate, with very regular temperatures and humidity. At the heart of the Ribeauvillé fault field, which superimposes limestone and marl from the Middle and Lower Jurassic, the Altenberg is composed of very stony red marly-limestone soils, shallow and rich in fossils commonly known as clayey-limestone soils.
• Food pairing : Accompanies a marbled Foie gras and its mirabelle plum jelly, but also fruit tarts and cooked cheeses.
