Rolly Gassmann Pinot Gris Brandhurst de Bergheim 2016

13% abv

Vol- 75cl

Rounded, honeyed fruit. The wine is a deep straw yellow colour. The nose is complex and hints at the richness of this wine. Aromas of honeysuckle, ripe pear, ginger and vanilla. The heady aromas are not let down by the exotically textured palate that delivers richness and complexity while maintaining balance. Pinot Gris grown in Alsace often produces this textured stye that marries well with classical french dishes that are based around Foie Gras.

The vignerons of domaines Rolly and Gassmann have been diligently tending the vines of Rorschwihr and Rodern since the seventeenth century; the Rolly family since 1676 and the Gassmann family since 1611. With the marriage of Marie-Thérèse Rolly and Louis Gassmann in 1967 the two estates were united and today the 45ha are run by their second son, Pierre, a quietly self-assured man with an evidently boundless passion for his profession.

The Gassmanns are a family of epicureans. It is hardly surprising then that 10% of their wines are sold annually to some of the greatest Michelin-starred restaurants of France. And herein lies a contradiction. Why are the wines rated so highly by many of the most prestigious Gallic chefs and yet they rarely win wine tastings? Why is the criticism “too much residual sugar” often levelled at their wines when they consistently have more acidity than most other Alsatian producers? The answer is simple. The Gassmanns make food-friendly wines which, for the most part, should not be drunk before 5 or 10 years. With age the acidity comes through to create the most perfectly balanced wines which sing with food.
