2018 Pinot Gris Calcaire

Varietal: pinot gris

Region: alsace

Roche Calcaire is essentially a "2nd wine" of the famed Clos Windsbuhl, with the same Calcaire (Limestone) subsoil influence but from younger vines and parcels selected out of the Grand Vin. Flint, smoke, chalk and cream all appear in brief flashes on the nose of this wine. The palate still holds some residual carbon dioxide but then slowly reveals serene and ripe but bright pear fruit at its core. Freshness takes its cue from a pithy texture and lends shape to this bold but fresh, bone-dry wine. Drink until 2035. 93pts Wine Enthusiast.
