Josmeyer - Pinot Gris Grand Cru Hengst, 2001

Domaine Josmeyer

Tasting note: Powerful nose, typical, a little earthy (limestone). The palate is generous, but seeks to give more. The ensemble is supported by a finely acidic backbone.

Seductive. Honey, vanilla, peach and mineral flavors are wrapped up in a swath of silk. Off dry and full - bodied, it caresses the palate, ushering in a long finish with a hint of grapefruit peel. 91 points. THE WINE SPECTATOR, avril 2003
This is the perfect accompaniment for foie gras terrine, lobster sauce and risotto with morels or porcini mushrooms. This is the wine that delights in sauce kidneys and pan-fried livers, pasta with soy sauce. Excellent with Chinese (Cantonese) or Moroccan (tajines, pastillas) cuisine.
