Here’s a stunning wine for lovers of rich Alsace pinot gris, the very lively acidity enabling it to carry a hint of sweetness without any trouble at all. Serious, chalky structure behind all the flesh and wonderfully bright citrus character at the powerful finish. From biodynamically grown grapes.

This well-cut version is floral on the nose and lively on the palate, with a hint of crushed almond underscoring the poached apricot, persimmon and pickled ginger flavors. Ends with a lightly chalky finish.

Plenty of apple-ring and dried-pear character, plus a whiff of honeycomb on the nose. But this wine isn’t so much about aroma as the creamy texture and delicate, chalky minerality that counterpoints it. Quite low in acidity, but still fresh and enticing. From biodynamically grown grapes.

The 2018 Pinot Gris Roche Calcaire is a beautiful wine. Apricot, chamomile, orange peel and wild flower all grace an airy, weightless Pinot Gris built on finesse and understatement. Light tropical accents add layers of nuance over time.

Flint, smoke, chalk and cream all appear in brief flashes on the nose of this wine. The palate still holds some residual carbon dioxide but then slowly reveals serene and ripe but bright pear fruit at its core. Freshness takes its cue from a pithy texture and lends shape to this bold but fresh, bone-dry wine.
