Lucien Albrecht Pinot Gris Cuvee Cecile'01, Alsace, France
A wonderful and classic Pinot Gris Special Cuvee from Alsace, France. Dry wine.
Technical Data:100% Pinot Gris. This Special Cuvee is hand-crafted from exclusively domaine-grown fruit. Named after Cecile Albrecht, one of the two daughters of the current owner. This finely crafted wine is made from old-vine vineyards from a careful selection at the time of the harvest. Unoaked.
Description:Bright golden color. This Cuvee is dense and concentrated on both its nose and its palate. Ripe tropical fruits and citrus-like aromas on the nose. This full-bodied wine is rich and complex with ripe fruit flavors such as apricot, citrus fruits, pear and peach laced with spiciness and a slight minerality with a hint of Flintstone flavors, this Cuvee has also a lingering finish.
Food Pairing & Service:Will be a very good pairing with all Thai and Asian dishes in general. Also great with seafood and fish. Serve chilled.
