Pinot Gris Clos Saint Landelin 2018

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 a good amount of sunshine until late in the afternoon. The north and south-west winds ensure that the vines remain healthy until harvest time. The steep slopes of the Clos Saint Landelin require terraced cultivation. Its marl and limestone soil is particularly stony. The subsoil is composed of Oligocene conglomerates with oolitic limestone pebbles. These elements come together to form a very distinctive terroir. 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:

This wine 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.
