Anne de Laweis Alsace Pinot Gris Reserve 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington [www.thesampler.co.uk ] for £10.Alsace is an AOC producing mainly white wines in the east of France by the German border.Indeed at some periods of history it was part of Germany and therefore the wines are not dissimilar to those on the other side of the Rhine.AOC rules dictate a tall thin bottle called a 'flute d'Alsace. This is the only French AOC where the grape type has to appear on the bottle.Pinot gris,like pinot blanc and pinot meunier is a mutation of pinot noir.Anne de Laweis was a lady who lived in Alsace in the 16th century whose name is now used by the Cave Kienzhein-Keyserberg co-operative.I started my bottle last night with my fish supper and I did enjoy it.It tasted dry yet fresh and with a citrus or apricot style fruit.There was plenty of flavour and it went well with the fish
