Paul Blanck Pinot Gris $24

All this talk of Alsatian Pinot Gris and nary an example to be found, until now. Paul Blanck can serve as a great introduction to Pinot Gris. They are affordable wines that give you a sampling of the floral and honey notes one can find in Alsace. Also, the wines are immediately accessible yet can stand a bit of age. Many argue that the true greatness of Pinot Gris comes with some age. Paul Blanck’s wines let you decide if that is the case with just a few years in the cellar, as opposed to the decade or more needed for some of the benchmark wines.

    Hi GDP

    As always your articles are informative and interesting, as it is always good to showcase different interpretations of varietals and how terroir, wine making style and local conditions influence the finished product.

    However I noticed a lack of any reference or mention of Central European Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio as now in Austria, Germany and Hungary there are wineries and vineyards producing outstanding Pinot Gris wines. Yes they are different than Alsace and Alto Adige, but they are well made, fruit driven and offer quality for a reasonable price.

    Cheers!
