Lucien Albrecht Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Cuvée Romanus 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine, made 100% from Pinot Blanc, is unoaked and fresh with a soft dry fruit. It is the wine to drink at home as an aperitif or with all casual family meals. Picked when very mature, harmonious with a lively spring finesse.

This is rather aromatic with notes of bitter apples, quartz, dusty tree bark and a light, almost honied, spice tone with a touch of musk. Rather focused on entry, this broadens nicely on the back end where it reveals a richly fruited sweet core of fruit. There’s a touch of spice here as well, adding some complexity. The acidity is bright but well-balanced. Not profound, but this delivers a lovely balance of fruit and spice that shows excellent persistence and adds a little mineral on the finale. 88pts

Golden straw hue, aromas of dried apples and dried melon with a honey spice; round flavor notes of yellow melon, citrus and apple dance across the palate with a viscious, oily hint of spice and mineral on a moderately long finish.



This wine, made 100% from Pinot Blanc, is unoaked and fresh with a soft dry fruit. It is the wine to drink at home as an aperitif or with all casual family meals. Picked when very mature, harmonious with a lively spring finesse.
