Product Description

Touch of honeyed sweetness with a rich mouthfeel, still fresh with smoky undergrowth characteristics. Lovely long length with balanced acidity and alcohol. Very rich even by Alsace Pinot Gris standards with a relatively high degree of residual grape sugars on the palate. (2015 abv 13.5%)

Henry and Catherine Fuchs are in their mid-forties and the third generation of the family to run this splendid 10 hectare domaine situated in the quality heartland of Alsace at Ribeauvill‚, a village renowned for its rich and opulent dry white wines.

Established in 1922, the Fuchs? family estate was one of the first to start bottling their own wines in 1945. Their vineyards are mainly situated in excellent sites throughout the commune of Ribeauvill‚, with a further 20% to be found in the neighbouring communes of Hunawihr and Bergheim.

The Fuchs use no weed-killers or man-made fertilisers on their vineyards which goes a long way to restricting yields, but they also prune very ?tightly? so that their final ?rendement? (yield) is at least 20% below the village average. In the winery, Henry avoids the use of pumps, preferring to rely on gravity to move his wine around, thereby reducing its contact with air. Sulphur Dioxide is avoided during the fermentation and is only added in minimal quantities following racking and filtration.

The overall effect of all this are wines of great freshness and character with excellent keeping potential and they are not normally released until they are showing at their best and ready for drinking.
