Description of the wine Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl 2000 - Vendange Tardive

We took the decision in the Windsbuhl Pinot Gris to harvest the healthy clusters before the noble rot, in order to produce a wine not too ripe. The botrytised grapes were harvested the same day in this vineyard and produced this VT. The botrytis was significant but not too important.

Tasting notes

This wine shows really typical flavours of the Windsbuhl on the nose: exotic fruit, pears, apricot mixed with white truffle and humus. It already shows an intense straw colour. The palate is powerful, long, not quite sweet, because it is balanced by a strong acidity. This is almost more of an old style of VT, slightly dryer, but perfectly harmonious. (12/2001)
