Pinot Noir Saint Grégoire 2019 AOC Alsace
- Guide Hachette 2021 | 1 étoile : 5/5
Fleshy, intense notes of red fruits
"Val St Grégoire" is a communal appellation that benefits the Pinot Blanc or Pinot Gris grape varieties in the Munster valley formerly called "Val Saint Grégoire". This is due to its semi-continental micro-climate, with very pronounced amplitudes, which is particularly successful for the Pinot varieties. Thanks to the specific terroir and micro-climate of the Munster Valley, the "Pinot" vines do particularly well there. The historical name of the Valley of Munster (before the Protestant reform) was "Val Saint Grégoire", hence the name of this cuvée.
- Ruby colour with black cherry highlights.
- Intense nose with fresh aromas of small red fruits.
- Fleshy, good presence in the mouth with an intense aromatic expression and round tannins.
