Gustave Lorentz Pinot Blanc Reserve 2021


The Pinot Blanc Reserve is light yellow in color, with a fruity and pleasant nose of fresh peaches and white flowers. A mouth-watering and warm structure, which makes the wine very pleasant and easy drinking. Its acidity provides freshness and makes it a great Pinot Blanc with a wonderful fruit, very approachable.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from various hillside vineyards around the village of Bergheim, with a predominance of heavy clay/limestone soil. They are hand-picked, usually around the beginning of October, with the whole grapes pressed. The pressed juice is separated from the free-run juice and undergoes 12-to-24 hours of “debourbage” or settling, to eliminate impurities, which are then filtered out. Fermentation takes place, using a combination of natural and selected yeasts, in stainless steel vats. The wine goes through two rackings, the first to separate the lees from the wine and the second to clarify the wine. It sits in tanks for six months, with the potential to age for approximately seven to eight years.

Serving Hints
The Pinot Blanc Reserve is a great match for both hot and cold appetizers, especially mussels and cold seafood plates. It also is an excellent aperitif and the most versatile wine coming from Alsace.
