Pinot Gris Clos Saint Landelin 2016

Pinot Gris Clos Saint Landelin

The vine:

Located in Rouffach, the Clos Saint Landelin, fully owned by the Muré family, covers an area of 12 hectares (29 acres). It marks the southern end of the Grand Cru Vorbourg. Located at the exit of the valley, it is exposed to the south and benefits from an excellent sun exposure until the late afternoon. This makes it a very distinctive terroir. The north and west winds ensure that the vines remain healthy until harvest time. Its steep slopes require terraced cultivation. The marl and limestone soil is particularly stony. The subsoil is composed of calcareous sandstone from the Bajocian period (Middle Jurassic) and calcareous conglomerates from the Oligocene period. The vineyard is worked in biodynamic agriculture. The vines are tightly planted, at about 10,000 plants per hectare (4,000 plants per acre).

Tasting notes:

Pinot Gris is one of the most generous Cépages of Alsace: it's a very gourmet wine which evokes ripe yellow fruits (such as delicate peaches and tangy apricots) but it also has a great subtlty with undergrowth and smoky aromas. The Clos Saint Landelin terroir gives a complex and well-structured wine, with an amazing aging potential.
This Pinot Gris is the ideal compagnon for poultry, truffles or hard cheese.


94+ - Vinous Janvier 2019 : « Golden-tinged straw. Intense aromas and flavors of passion fruit, mushrooms and forest floor; like a hike in the forest on a drizzly day. Lovely, long and very clean, with refined yet very concentrated notes of tropical fruit and pear nectar on the long, suave, slightly smoky finish. Knockout Pinot Gris of superb depth complexity.» Ian d’Agata
