Zeyssolff Selection de Grains Nobles Pinot Gris, Alsace 2007

Tasted 19/12/11 with Sara, Beata and Jean-Marc. 50cl, 13% abv. n/a UK, private import only. c. £12 ex-cellars. Only made in exceptional years, botrytised Pinot Gris is quite rare to experience. Golden colour, the nose is complex and full of seville oranges, the palate raisins and apricots. Not too sweet and with a dryish finish. Rich and full, this is more at home with pate or cheese than a dessert. Lovely, unusual wine. From 2012, 17.5 / 20
