In its luminescent amber colour, the 2000 Pinot Gris Rotenberg Sélection de Grains Nobles hides a sweet secret that is already revealed in the olfactory prelude. Its melted honey notes and candied fruits, enhanced by a variety of intense spices - from ginger and cinnamon to cloves and vanilla, invite a deeper dive into the glass. Smoky elements harmoniously frame the overall play of aromas, adding intensity and complexity.
Your palate is greeted with a sweet elixir that glides over your tongue with immeasurable intensity, accompanied by a hint of salt. The matching acidity manages to counteract this richness a little and helps to intensify the play of flavours. We are talking about an extremely concentrated sweet wine that will send lovers of this type of wine into ecstasy.
The soil of the Rotenberg brought this flinty harmony to life in 2000, and the result is an elegant wine with a deep, reddish hue and wonderfully balanced acidity. The Pinot Gris SGN has an expressive aromatic palette, from peach and honey to hints of tropical fruit, captured in a fresh bouquet of quince and pear. It leaves a lasting impression and proves that it is an asset to any wine cellar.
To create a wonderful dining experience, we recommend enjoying this wine with caramelised almond slivers and vanilla ice cream, a dark chocolate parfait garnished with a dollop of Pinot Gris enriched cream or a creamy blue cheese served with homemade orange chutney.
