It's not everyday that one gets the chance to savour twelve year old Alsace Pinot Gris from a top vineyard and vintage.

The site translates as 'Red earth' on account of its darker, richer loamy soils, which when coupled with the VT quality gives a brilliantly emphatic nose, fully ripe, unstoppable power, presence, with those distinct bacony flavours that seem to go hand-in-hand with the vintage everywhere in Europe!

It's sweet but tastes dry! A must have wine for now till 2016.
