Domaine Rolly Gassmann Brandhurst de Bergheim Pinot Gris 2020
Rolly-Gassmann owns 2.47 hectares of vineyards in Bergheim which sit on Jurassic marl limestone soils. These ancient soils help to produce rich and elegant wines. The lieu-dit Brandhurst de Bergheim is located at 240 to 300 metres above sea level and the vines face south-east which aids ripening. The vineyards are managed following organic and biodynamic principles but are not certified. Following fermentation, which lasted for four months, the wine spent a further two months on lees. It was then transferred to old oak barrels, where it aged for a eleven months before bottling. This Pinot Gris has a generous character of ripe apricot, pear and golden raisins with luscious mid-palate and long, lingering finish.
