Domaine Rémy Gresser – Brandhof Pinot Gris 2013
The Gresser family has been in Andlau, a village halfway between Strasbourg and Colmar, since the 14th century. Their winemaking tradition dates back to 1520 when Thiébaut Gresser began farming the vines on slopes at the foot of the Mont Sainte Odile, a terroir rich in schist which is perhaps the most complex and varied geology of all 119 wine villages of Alsace. The ten-hectare estate is now run by Rémy Gresser, whose philosophy is focused on a love of the land. Using organic and biodynamic methods, Remy creates wines whose style combines elegance and aromatic richness. Each wine has its own unique personality reflecting Rémy’s respect of the terroir’s history, culture and environment.
A rich-textured Pinot Gris with captivating aromas of rose petal and Turkish delight with just a hint of sweetness on the finish.
One of the oldest domaines in Alsace, dating back to 1520. A philosophy of respecting terroir and the environment drives the approach. This pinot gris has delicate aromas of white flower, sweet spices and tropical fruits, followed by a rich-textured palate and brisk acidity. 90/100 -Decanter, April 2016
