- 2005 Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris - France, Alsace, Alsace AOC (2/6/2007)
Fresh of the boat, the glue is barely dry.
I'm not sure why but it has wax on top of the cork AND foil on top of that...
Light straw color, nose of lemongrass, spices and pears.
On the palate this is slightly bitter with notes of citrus, pears and a bit of caramel as the wine warms up in the glass. It picked up a mushroom flavor on day 2. Quite a long finish, lacks acidity though.
It reminded me of a flat beer if that makes sense...
Overall a good wine but for a few dollars more you can get Grands Crus PG from Albert Mann and for me they are worth the extra dollars. (89 pts.)
