Marc Kreydenweiss Moenchberg Grand Cru Pinot Gris, Alsace 2017
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
The Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss produces biodynamic wines in Alsace and in the Rhone Valley. The winery has been certified since 1989. Today, Kreydenweiss farms a little less than 30 acres of vineyards in Alsace, which includes portions of 3 Grand Cru vineyards: Kastelberg, Moenchberg, and Weibelsberg. Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc vines dominate the plantings, but Kreydenweiss has other varieties planted, including a small plot of Chardonnay.
A sweet floral/candy nose will hit you right away and immediately make you forget your drinking pinot gris. The palate has hints of sour fruit (watermelon/lemon). The finish is long and has a mineral or stone texture. The sweetness on the finish lingers across the palate. Medium bodied.
