This excellent 7-hectare estate is situated in the village of Husseren and is run by Andre's son Christophe, who trained in Burgundy and Australia and who took over from his father in 1990. Winemaking has run in the family for over 200 years and Christophe is the 9th generation winemaker to take over the reins of the family estate. The vines are situated on the famed plateau of Eguisheim and include 2 hectares of grands crus vineyards at Eichberg and Pfersigberg. This particular Pinot Gris is elegant and fresh with a persistent finish. Great food wine!
A pale straw-yellow in colour. On the nose, orange blossom, white peach and green apple. On the palate, light and delicate in texture with notes of citrus and pear. There is a silky viscosity with a dry and lingering finish. Great mineral notes. Pair with a simply roasted chicken, choucroute Alsacienne with pork and sausages or poached trout in court bouillon.
