Description of the wine Pinot Gris Rotenberg 2002 - Vendange Tardive

In 2002, the noble was important in this vineyard, and there certainly was potential to select an SGN. In order not to risk rain on the grapes, we decided to do a cluster selection (which also allowed us to produce a less rich drier style Rotenberg) that was done just hours before the rain started again. The result is a wine with very high potential and very close to the SGN style. The fermentation went easily, which confirms the style of a VT more than SGN.

Tasting notes

01/2004 : The nose shows clearly the calcareous and botrytis influence: strong minerals, under-wood with honey/bee wax aromas. The palate is very rich and intense, showing an unctuous sweet palate. The residual sweetness is important, and this wine will certainly keep its sweetness through a very long ageing capacity.
