Description of the wine Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl 2003 - Jéroboam

The Clos Windsbuhl enjoyed some of the ‘coolest’ climatic condition in 2003. The grapes were harvested very healthy and ripe. Like most other vineyard, it was important to wait well after the 15th September to harvest those grapes, in order to achieve good physiological ripeness. The windsbuhl fermented quite fast, producing an unusual amount of lees, giving this wine a serious concentration and impressive palate.

Tasting notes

06/2004 : the nose shows strong lees contact today, with smoky, nutty and toasty aromas. The palate is powerful and quite strict, showing good concentration. This wine is almost lean today, but I expect it to develop in the next few months, especially after summer.

10/2004 : the bottling brought the righ amount of oxygen to allow this wine to open up from its strong lees character. Very mineral palate, dry, and powerful finish.
