Seppi Landmann Vallee Noble Pinot Gris 2011

$ 19.75

This rich and unctuous nectar offers irresistible aromas of exotic fruits and honey. 100% Pinot Gris

It is made from Pinot Gris grapes harvested passed their maturity on the Zinnkoepflé (small hill of the sun) Grand Cru.  Founded in the early 1980’s by Seppi Landmann, the estate of the same name now spans over 8.5 hectares. Following the announcement of a well-deserved retirement for Mr. Lanmann.

Bright intense yellow with a nose of pear, honey, and floral notes.  Smooth and balanced off-dry palate with a long finish. 

The range of still wines from the estate includes an assortment of 30 different wines to harmonize with a wide variety of gastronomic dishes for example to innovate in the matching of wine and food, a 1992 Sylvaner cuvée Hors la loi (outlaw Sylvaner bin) made from grapes with noble rot, can be drunk as an appetizer, then accompany a snail casserole and continue to match a veal cutlet with a creamy morel mushroom sauce. It is also a perfect match with cheese like saint nectaire or a mature tome de Savoy.   Pairs with fish, salads, poultry, and cheese.
