Nose

The 2002 Pinot Gris Altenbourg Sélection de Grains Nobles captivates despite the advanced maturity in the nose with incredibly fresh aromas that remind of fresh oranges, citrus, fresh and dried apricots and ginger. These aromas are accompanied by broom, blossom honey, cinnamon and elderflowers. one would like to dive because of the animating bouquet literally into this noble sweet elixir.

Palate

This is confirmed by the 2002 Pinot Gris Altenbourg Sélection de Grains Nobles even after having taken it on the tongue. The multifaceted and intense sweetness is accompanied by a racy acidity and through it and the salty minerality, the salivation is incredibly stimulated. A concentrated, complex sweet wine monument that still brings many years of storage potential.

The Pinot Gris grew on the Altenbourg, a vineyard with limestone and sedimentary rock. The slow ripening provides almost ideal conditions for a late and dry berry selection. This wine impresses with its long-lasting bouquet of orange, pear and quince. It shows a great balance.
