Christophe Lindenlaub Des Racines Et Des Ailes
Grapes: Pinot Gris
Vintage: 2018 & 2019
Christophe Lindenlaub comes from a long line of winemakers in Alsace with the family growing grapes here since the 18th century. The vineyards have been worked organically since 2009 and the wines made fully naturally since 2014. All grapes are handpicked, fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled without any additions or filtration. Though all unique, Christophe's wines invariably have great energy and tension with nervy acidity and vibrant fruit.
Des Racines is Pinot Gris from both the 2018 and 2019 vintages. It's spicy and intense with ripe pear, quince and nougat aromas leading to rich and silky palate with more spice balanced by touches of bitter herbs.
