Pierre Sparr Pinot Gris Alsace 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite apple and mineral driven on the nose with some chalky soil tones topped with polleny floral notes and a touch of butcher’s wax. Noticeably sweet on entry but with tons of acidity lending this a vivid sweet/tart impression on the palate. The fruit is ripe with hints of peach and even something tropical and banana like framing the core of apple fruit. There’s a lovely hint of bitterness on the finish, along with more banana fruit and green apple , but the bitterness really keeps things interesting when juxtaposed against the sweet/tart palate impression. Kind of fun in a serious and decidedly food friendly way. 88pts
