The Grand Cru Vorbourg is located in Rouffach, in the south of Alsace, and is sheltered by the Petit Ballon and the Grand Ballon, two of the highest peaks of the Vosges. Its marly-limestone soil rests on Oligocene conglomerates with oolitic limestone pebbles. It is rich in iron, which gives it a characteristic red ochre colour. The Vorbourg is exposed to the south and south-east.
The "V" is for the first letter of the word Vorbourg. This pinot noir is planted in the grand cru Vorbourg area and can’t be called as it. Indeed, the only type of vines authorized in appelation Grand Cru are the riesling, the pinot gris, the gewurztraminer and the muscat.
Tasting notes :
Red color, brilliant ruby. Delicate nose of crunchy cherry and vanilla. In mouth a beautiful fruity attack.The mid-palate brings complexity with notes of pepper, blueberry and chocolate.
This Pinot Noir is perfect with red meat, duck, pigeon or game.
