A full-bodied and elegant Pinot gris from an emblematic domain of Alsace. Leave this biodynamic nectar of the gods to age in the cellar for a few years!” More info

This characterful, sophisticated Pinot Gris has a full-bodied, vibrant attack. Perfectly-balanced, it deserves to be cellared for a long while, in order to reveal its more complex notes. Cultivated biodynamically, the grapes are fermented in old barrels with ambient yeasts, which allows the grapes to retain the varietal characteristics. We recommend opening this cuvée an hour before serving with escalopes in a cream and mushroom sauce or foie gras.

Pinot Gris (Tokay) Cuvée Laurence Weinbach (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 9°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Coquilles Saint-Jacques, Filet mignon braisé à lorange, Tarte Tatin.

    Information about domain Weinbach

    One of the most beautiful properties in Alsace, the Weinbach vineyard covers just over 26 hectares. The Capuchin monks produced a wine from the early 17th century on the historic terroir of the Clos des Capucins (5 hectares enclosed by walls). Sold as a national asset in the French Revolution, the property was acquired in 1898 by the Faller brothers, who passed it on to their son and nephew, Théo. A major figure in French viticulture and an ardent defender of Alsace's vineyards, largely responsible for their being granted AOC status, Théo Faller died in 1979. His wife Colette and her daughters Catherine and Laurence took charge of the property and continued to build its reputation; it is now known all over the world. Located at the base of the majestic Schlossberg hill, it benefits from an exceptional position that has all of the geological and climate characteristics usually associated with Alsace's finest wines. The vineyard is tended with a deep respect for nature and with a view to expressing each terroir. The harvests are delayed until optimal ripeness; after rigorous selection the grapes are gently, progressively pressed, followed by long fermentations in old oak casks. The property produces successful generic cuvées, but really stands out for its grandes cuvées, named after members of the family, and associated with each terroir.
