Tasting note from dated 15.01.2012, copyright Christina Hilker and Vinaturel:

Color/Look:

Sparkling golden yellow with clear amber reflections.
 

Nose:

The 2003 Pinot Gris Sélection de Grains Nobles Altenbourg smells of candied fruits such as apple, quince, orange zest and apricots. Accompanied by sweet aromas reminiscent of cotton candy, blossom honey and white chocolate. The sweet flavours appear elegant; almost airy and are supported by a smoky aroma.

 

Palate:

On the tongue, the 2003 Pinot Gris Sélection de Grains Nobles Altenbourg appears playful and presents itself with juicy fruit and creamy sweetness. The acidity enlivens in the background and the finish seems rich, opulent and well structured. A wine that presents itself in a beautiful stage but still has a few years of aging and storage potential ahead of it.
 

Altenbourg

The slightly ascending vineyard near Kientzheim is 225 to 250 meters high and directly below the Grand Cru Furstentum. The soils are also characterized by limestone and sedimentary deposits, but much more sandy. Here, mainly Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris are grown, which ripen very slowly here and often offer ideal conditions for great Vendages Tardives (Alsatian late vintages) and Selection de Grains Nobles (dry berry selections).
