The 2017 Alsace Pinot Gris Altenbourg Selection de Grain Nobles Quintessence is spicy and very clear on the nose, with perfectly ripe pineapple aromas. Intense and refined on the palate, this is a very aromatic, elegant and salty Gewurtz with stunning, almost Riesling-like finesse. A great wine.
Wow. This shows amazing ripe and spicy fruit character with almonds, tart tartine, and sliced peaches. Full-bodied, yet bright and tangy with extremely direct and sweet fruit. Goes on for minutes. All about purity.
