According to legend Pinot Gris has Hungarian origins, but in reality it comes from Burgundy and is part of the Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir family. It produces aromatic wines where one can detect notes of candied fruit, quince, pear, honey and occasionally undergrowth or fresh mushrooms. Pinot Gris is one of the noble grapes of the region and therefore it features in all of the appellations (AOP Alsace, Alsace Grand Cru, it is also processed in Vendanges Tardives and Sélection de Grains Nobles).

Pinot Gris Bollenberg 2015
This wine has a brilliant yellow colour, on the nose we can find aromas of crunchy apricot and citrus fruits with some plum notes, and on the palate, the attack is supple and well balanced. The main aromas are reminiscent of lightly cooked fruits such as apple and peach, with a pine resin side at the end of the palate. The whole has a beautiful salinity and a beautiful length in the mouth.
Pinot Gris Cuvée Maximilien 2013
In addition to its bright yellow colour, this wine has a nose that reminds me of a four-quarter lemon from the oven (who knows). Its mouth is very sweet and deep, the sugar still lacks a little melted at the moment, it will have to be waited a little longer. The acidity is well present and carries aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits with a touch of zest.
Pinot Gris Enchenberg 2014
This wine has a brilliant golden colour.
The nose is impressively open and leads between apple, pear, candied quince and a woody side. It really gives the impression that this wine will be sweet, but….
On the palate, the attack is frank and lively, the wine then opens to bring us fruity flavours of apple and apricot just ripe, the minerality is well present behind the fruit and still highlights the very dry side of this mouth.
To sum up, the whole thing seems quite disconcerting at first sight but after the first surprise, we discover with curiosity the multiple facets of this wine which despite its strongly atypical aspect remains incredibly pleasant to taste.
Pinot Gris Grand Cru Pfingstberg 2013
Its golden yellow colour introduces a nose of great minerality, very fresh and stretched over aromas of wedge/pear. The palate has a beautiful acidity, also very tense and with aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits.
The eight grams of sugar go completely unnoticed.
Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rangen 2007
A beautiful golden yellow colour will accompany you to a nose with an exceptionally powerful and woody attack that continues with notes of gingerbread, quince pastes and salted butter caramel.
The palate will lead you along a soft and mellow attack towards aromas of vanilla and fresh white fruits (peach/pear) to finish with a touch of orange and gingerbread at the end of the mouth with a beautiful acid line that brings tension. We end on notes of carbon, graphite
Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rangen Vendanges Tardives 2001
Most certainly one of the most powerful wines in our vineyard! Behind its old gold colour, you will discover a full nose of quince, gingerbread and honey with a touch of minerality slightly flint. The attack explodes in the mouth with quince and peach predominating with honeyed notes, a hint of walnut and a strong salinity. The palate is very full with an exceptional length, this description only partially pays tribute to this wine and I lack the words to describe its exceptional “power” aspect. food & wine pairing: Difficult to find matches for wines such as this one, although it would be perfect on a foie gras, I would rather tend to orient myself towards North African dishes like a fig tagine or perhaps even paupiettes of veal with prunes, or even some Thai or Chinese dishes of the bitter-sweet type.

Pinot Gris Grand Cru Zinnkoepfle 2017
The colour is clear yellow with a very open nose of peach, plum and a touch of woody. The palate is fresh with a hint of sweetness, the acidity is frank and brings tension. We will find aromas of peach, quince and crunchy grapes. When I taste this wine (2019) I find it a little closed and think that it would still need to age for some time to provide its full potential.
Pinot Gris Sélection de Grains Nobles 1994 (37,5cl)
A rare and prestigious wine with an extreme concentration and fantastic aromatic richness, this wine has extraordinary reminiscences of cooked peaches, candied lemon zest, fruit cake, caramelized butter, caramel, plum cake and various spices; on the palate, cherries, raspberries, apricots, orange peel confit bust. Graceful, well structured, this nicely proportioned wine seems to be at the peak of its maturity yet it has the balance and substance necessary for a good ageing in the cellar.
Pinot Gris Vendanges Tardives 1999
This Pinot Gris comes from the slopes of the Pfingstberg and after admiring its very pronounced golden yellow, you can smell its slightly botrytised nose mixing notes of gingerbread and acacia honey.Its mouth is opulent, supple and silky, a fine acidity appears backwards bringing with it powerful aromas of honey slightly botrytised, oranges and white fruits… Food & wine pairing: A wine to taste as an aperitif, with foie gras or with desserts, and especially chocolate desserts!
