I bought this bottle of wine at my local supermarket where it was on special offer for £5. 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 Blanc is a white wine grape which like pinot gris and pinot meunier is a mutation of pinot noir.Calvet [ www.calvet.com ] is a negociant house founded by Jean Marie Calvet in 1818 now owned by Les Grands Chais de France and this bottle was made for them byBenoit Putlin at Arthur Metz winery in Marlemheim.I started my bottle last night with a supper of Quiche Lorraine,a dish from the same part of France as the wine.I enjoyed it.It is a dry wine but there is plenty of an apple-like fruit and flavour there.It was not as good as the Jean-Victor Senner version I had a few weeks ago because the fruit was not as intense but it was a nice wine at a value for money price.
