- Dom Weinbach Pinot Gris Altenbourg 2010 Magnum Product #26626 (In Stock)
A breathtaking example of Alsace Pinot Gris, rich but with the sweetness cut by laser-beam acidity. Brilliant.
"Bright yellow. Wild, exotic aromas of tropical fruits, apricot, caramelized pear and cinnamon apple. Silky, fat and sweet on entry, then racy acidity gives the mid-palate a firmer feel and more tension than the Cuvee Ste. Catherine bottling. Very concentrated pinot gris with a tactile, umami-like texture. A high-wire act of substantial sweetness (31.3 g/l) and brisk acidity (8 g/l). Finishes very long and pure, gaining in firmness with air."International Wine Cellar 91 points
"Layered flavors of apricot, almond, star fruit, spice and grapefruit zest mix in this silky white. It leans toward off-dry, but firm, well-meshed acidity and a zesty undercurrent of minerality keep it fresh and focused. Drink now through 2025."Wine Spectator 92 points
