DESCRIPTION :

Our Grand Cru Froehn is amongst the INAO’s 51 best terroirs found in Alsace. A medium-dry white wine, its nose is a delicate mix of smoked aromas (grilled almonds), honey, quince and candied fruits. It is unctuous, harmonious and very refreshing on the palate. It also has long-lasting longevity, which makes it an excellent vin de garde.

ALCOOL : 13 %

MÉTHODES DE VINIFICATION ET D'ÉLEVAGE :

Traditional vinification and cultivation method. The grapes are harvested manually and then progressively pressed in a pneumatic press in order to extract the juice and aromas. The naturally present yeast on the grapes will start the alcoholic fermentation process that will change the grape juice into wine. Temperature controls are conducted throughout the fermentation process in order to guarantee persistence and balance. Two to three months after the fermentation process, the wine is racked in order to start maturing. Before bottling, each vat is filtered in order to guarantee the organic stability and conservation of the wine.

TEMPS DE GARDE : 8 years.
CONSEILS GASTRONOMIQUES :

Our Pinot Gris can be used as a first-class aperitif to go with some foie gras. It also goes well with certain seafoods such as scallops, oven-cooked fish, crayfish gratin, shellfish in a cream saffron sauce and white meats such as duck in orange sauce, tarragon sautéed guinea fowl, mushroom-stuffed turkey and veal in a cream sauce.
