Top Alsace Pinot Gris tasted 10/13

3. Domaines Schlumberger Spiegel Pinot Gris (2007)

« Prev Next » 3 of 6
Previously available for $12.89
Intense on the nose with lots of heirloom apple notes, a touch of gaminess, and layers of dried floral spice, white pepper, and hints of caramel and honeycomb. Smooth and polished in the mouth, this has a wonderful texture but it does lack the intensity of flavors that marks the best examples of Alsace Pinot Gris. The fruit is a bit in the background, all old apple toned and slightly savory with a lovely umami framing note. There are some small candiedcitrus framing notes on the palate that lead to a dry, firm and long finish which takes on the spicy character of dried flowers and honeycomb found on the nose. 89pts

  • 729598Saffredi Dear Pinot Gris - , Pinot Grigio - , Grauburgunder afficionados, When at its very best this is certainly one of my favourite wines! Though some Alsacian producers make very good P.G., the best P.G.'s still come from North and Northeast Italy: Alto Adige and Friuli. Yes, Italy. We should quickley disregard any P.G. from Veneto (don't know why it sells so good in the US; must be the low price). But in Alto Adige I just recently tasted the top level P.G.'s from Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof (2011 and 2012) and in Friuli Isonzo the 2009, 2010 and 2011 P.G. Dessimis from Vie di Romans. Not just excellent, but truly outstanding (in my point of view). If you are used to drinking regular P.G.'s from the States or Veneto, Italy, a new world will be opening up for you when drinking the P.G.'s I just tasted. WOW !
