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.
