2021, Domaine Weinbach, Pinot Gris, 'Les Caracoles'


Dry finish.

The 2021 Pinot Gris Les Caracoles is named after the Schnackator lieu-dit, a name perhaps linked to snail-shaped fossils in the limestone soils. It is just underneath the grand cru Furstentum, on clay and limestone; the vines are 40-50 years old. This was aged in foudre, and the nose is very shy. There is a mere faint note of lemon. The palate then presents a cool, lemon-edged sense of juicy pear but remains streamlined and bright, giving the merest edge of almond skin bitterness. The finish is bone-dry and mouth-watering. (Bone-dry). 91 Anne Krebiehl MW, Vinous.

Drinking Window: 2027 - 2030
