Domaine Zind Humbrecht Roche Roulee Pinot Gris 2017
|Brand||Domaine Zind Humbrecht|
Fruit concentration is apparent from the first whiff of this wine. Russet-pear peel seems charged with lemon rind and an aromatic edge of licorice. The palate relaxes into freshness kissed by a gentle, rounding sweetness. Flavors convey concentration and a sense of seriousness despite that dollop of sugar. The finish is almost dry and exquisitely balanced. Drink 2020-2040.
Broad and creamy, this medium-bodied white features a silky palate of baked pear and apricot fruit, orange peel, honeysuckle and blanched almond flavors, backed by sleek, well-knit acidity. Minerally notes of smoke and stone play on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2027. 52 cases imported.
The 2017 Alsace Pinot Gris Roche Roulée has an intense, aromatic but fine and elegant nose of ripe fruits. Round and juicy on the palate, this dry Pinot Gris from the gravelly soils of the valley floor is generous and provided with fine tannins and a long, powerful finish. Promising. Tasted from the vat in October 2018. Drink Date: 2020-2028.
