Tasting Note:

A supremely elegant Vendanges Tardives from the early ripening 2011 vintage that hails from parcel of Pinot Gris vines in the granitic Grand Cru Schlossberg. Harvest was made on the 14th October. Caramelised fig, spun sugar, Williams pear and a lightly creamy note on the nose lead to a very intense palate with plenty of bright acidity. I wrote at the time that this was like the bottom of a tarte tatin dish, which sounds like a pretty good place to be. Highly silky, refined and fluide . An utter delight. 107g/l residual sugar and 13% abv.
