Description of the wine Pinot Gris Vieilles Vignes 1996

This wine entirely comes from the Herrenweg vineyard. They were planted in 1946, just like the Herrenweg gewurztraminer. In this location, the alluvial soil is the driest and warmest, always producing aromatic wines, packed with exotic flavors. The 1996 combines a high ripeness with strong structure.
